A 42-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by jumping from his third floor apartment in Secunderabad, police said on Sunday.

K Ravi Kumar, a software professional who had returned from the United States, was under mental stress and depression since 2004 following an accident and was jobless, Karkhana police station inspector B Janaiah said.

The incident occurred around 3.45pm on Saturday.

“He used to quarrel with his wife who worked at a shop. The couple do not have children. Yesterday morning too, they had a quarrel after which she left for work. In the afternoon, he jumped from the sliding window of his apartment and suffered grievous injuries to his head, hands and legs,” the inspector told PTI.

A video of the incident showed Kumar jumping from the window of his apartment and falling onto the ground. Officials said some local residents might have captured the video while the man was jumping.

Kumar was taken to a nearby hospital but succumbed to his injuries, said Janaiah, adding that it looked like a case of suicide due to depression, as per preliminary investigations. The official said that no suicide note was found.
