A 45-year-old Japanese national and senior executive of a multi-national company, Olympus India, allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself in the lawns of upscale DLF Icon condominium, Sector 43, in the wee hours of Monday.
The body of deceased Tsutomi Omair was found hanging from an iron pole attached to the fencing wire at 9am. The incident came to light in the morning when a gardener went to the lawn and informed the guards on duty.
In a suicide note found from his eighth floor apartment, Omair wrote, “I am sorry for what I have done”. He also left behind three separate messages for his father, wife and children, all written in Japanese language. Though the police called a translator, the content of the messages has not been disclosed.
Officials said that the notes would be read only after his family members arrive from Japan. The police, however, ruled out foul play and said prima facie, it appeared to be a case of suicide. The exact reason that prompted him to take the extreme step is still not clear.
Meanwhile, the victim’s body has been sent to Civil Hospital where a post-mortem will be conducted to ascertain the exact time of death. The police have also recovered several medicines from his apartment and suspect Omair was probably under depression.
The apartment keys were recovered from the pocket of his trouser. He had probably locked the flat late in the night and come down to the lawns after leaving the suicide notes on his bed.
Maheshwar Dayal, deputy commissioner of police (crime), said, “A post mortem would be conducted only after the arrival of the deceased’s family members and after we get a nod from the Japanese Embassy.”
He added, “In one of the suicide notes, Omair has regretted his decision while the other three notes carry personal content meant for family members.”
