“I am weak. I am sorry for leaving you alone. Please take care of yourself and the kids.”

This was the last note that Japanese national and managing director of Olympus Medical Systems India, who recently committed suicide in Gurgaon, wrote to his 45-year old wife.

The top Olympus executive Tsutomi Omori had committed suicide by hanging in the lawns of The Icon Condominium in Sector 43 on Monday. The father, wife and younger brother of the deceased had arrived in Delhi to conduct the last rites.

In another note addressed to his father, Omori wrote, “Sorry for troubling you. Please take care of my children and wife.”

The note addressed to children was however not opened as they are still in Japan.

Meanwhile, the postmortem examination was conducted on Thursday. Jiro Omorio (44), younger brother of the deceased collected the body. Following this, it was taken to Delhi and cremated at the electric crematorium on Lodhi Road.

The team of Olympus Medical System India Pvt. Ltd was also present during the last rites. The family will fly back to Tokyo after completing all formalities at the Embassy of Japan on Friday.

Maheshwar Dayal, DCP (crime), “The family is in deep shock. The family told us that Omori was in regular touch with them. They said he was a homely man.”

Dr Hazari Lal, who conducted the postmortem, said, “Omori died due to asphyxiation.

The samples have been sent to Madhuban Lab.”
