The Tardeo police investigating the suicide case of a 28-year-old diamond firm employee are going to question the technicians who had been working on the terrace when the man jumped from a high-rise building on Wednesday.
Five hours after his suicide the police found that Jignesh Shah had jumped off the terrace. Shah, a resident of CP Tank in Marine Lines, had gone to meet his grandfather who lives on the first floor of the 30-storey Enterprise Tower.
The watchman found his body on the ground. No suicide note was found.
“The watchman told us that a few technicians from a cell phone company were doing repair works at the tower on the terrace. After completing work, they locked the terrace and left,” said an officer. The police checked the terrace and found it locked. “It was difficult to say from where Shah jumped,” said an officer.
Police then unlocked the terrace and found Shah’s slippers. “We are now going to record the statements of the technicians to find if they saw him enter the terrace or if he spoke to any one of them,” said the officer.
Ramesh Gadade, senior police inspector, said the technicians’ statements would be recorded on Saturday. “This is definitely a suicide case. We are taking the statement of the family to determine the reason behind his suicide,” said Gadade.
