53-year-old Jayaram, a D group employee at the Income Tax Department in Bengaluru reported to work on Wednesday as usual. He took signatures on important bills, handed over the documents that came by post to the officials. Around 11 30 am, Jayaram walked up to the 6th floor of the building and reportedly jumped off to death.
Reports say that he jumped off the sixth floor of the I-T department office located in Unity Building near Corporation Circle.
According to the police, it was a clear case of suicide, as Jayaram had himself opened the lock of the sixth floor.
A resident of Azadnagar in Chamarajpet, Jayararm had been working at the department for almost 35 years, say reports.
His colleagues told media that they had not observed anything wrong with Jayaram on Wednesday and had no indication that he would take his own life.
Jayaram's son Rudresh told The Times of India that his father was worried about his health.
"Ours is a happy family and my father was not talkative. He made sure my sister and I got a decent education. It was he who helped me to get a job soon after completing ITI a few years ago," said Rudresh, who works at a private company.
While Jayaram left home half-an-hour earlier than usual, the family had not felt anything was amiss. Jayaram had told his family that he had some extra work and needed to reach office early. It was only when his colleagues informed Rudresh, that he came to know of the incident.
