A top executive of the Adani Tower Ltd allegedly committed suicide in a hotel room on Saturday morning in the city, the police reported on Sunday.
An employee of the company found Adani Power Ltd Vice-President Deepak Rashmi Tripathi’s body in his hotel room on Sahakar Marg, when the employee came looking for him when all of his calls went unanswered.
61-year-old Tripathi had arrived in Jaipur on October 11 from Ahmedabad for some official work and checked in to Hotel Fortune in the city on October 13. His suicide was brought to light when his colleague Rajnish Pandey called him on Saturday.
“Pandey was calling him over the morning and when his calls continued to remain unanswered, he reached the hotel expecting the worst,” the officer said, adding that the hotel administration informed the police of the incident. On Saturday evening, the police informed the family members of the deceased and handed over the body to them after post-mortem.
The police said Tripathy appears to have taken a poison in the wee hours of Saturday. He took the blame for his act saying he was killing himself because he was “tired of his life”, the officer said, quoting his suicide note.
“In his suicide note, he has mentioned that he was fed up with life and he is solely responsible for suicide and stated that nobody else should be held responsible for his suicide. He was rushed to the Sawai Man Singh hospital where he was declared brought dead,” a senior officer of Ashok Nagar police station said. An investigation is going on and police will check call details of the deceased. “Prima facie, it appears there is no abetment to suicide involved in this case. Still we will investigate other possible reasons for the death,” the officer added.
