City police suspect that Gitanjali Mandelkar, the 27-yearold techie who allegedly jumped to her death from the tenth floor of her office tower in Cessna Business Park on Wednesday afternoon, was depressed over personal issues and was contemplating suicide for the past couple of days.
Initial police probe that looked into her browsing history has revealed that on November 14 she had searched for “ways to kill self” on Google multiple times. Police also suspect that Gitanjali was unhappy over her engagement to a suitor chosen by her family and in fact had gone home in connection with it. As of Thursday, Marathahalli police believe that her death was a suicide and have ruled out any foul play.
“She (Gitanjali) had searched for ways to take her own life multiple times in the last couple of days. She had gone home to take part in a small function which we think was linked with her engagement. The family is not revealing much at the moment,” said a police official involved in the case.

She is said to have gone straight up the stairs and found the terrace door open on the tenth floor. She removed her sandals and took the fatal plunge at around 12:30 pm. She was taken to Sakra World Hospital where she was declared brought dead.

Software engineer from U.S. killed in bizarre road accident
K. Raghu, a software engineer working in the United States, was killed in an accident after his two-wheeler hit a temporary wooden arch erected on Avinashi Road near Peelamedu for MGR centenary celebrations. As soon as he fell off the motorcycle, the 32-year-old man was run over by a heavy vehicle killing him on the spot. The accident occurred around 2.40 a.m. on Saturday.
The accident occurred when Raghu was on his way to Singanallur bus stand. The victim, who had come to Coimbatore to finalise his marriage, was planning to park the motorcycle at Singanallur bus stand and take a bus to Palani Murugan Temple.
As Raghu crossed the signal at Coimbatore Medical College junction, protruding portion of a wooden pole that formed part of the arch on the road hit his two-wheeler. Having fell on the road, he was run over by a heavy vehicle which is yet to be identified. His head was completely crushed in the accident.
“Though the youth had worn helmet, it was thrown off in the impact of the accident,” said an official from Traffic Investigation Wing-East. Raghu was scheduled to return to the U.S. on Saturday night.
R.M. Selvaraj, a social worker, said that accident occurred due to sheer negligence from the side of authorities by permitting to erect arches and hoarding structures on the road. In fact, they occupied more than 20 % to 30 % of the motorable space. He claimed that the issue was informed to the police on Friday itself but negligence led to the accident.
“Though MGR centenary celebrations are to be held on December 3, cut outs encroaching roads were erected more than a week in advance posing inconvenience and threat to the motorists. Authorities should take efforts to remove the temporary structures encroaching roads immediately,” said another motorist.
On the stretch from Airport junction to VOC Ground, more than 10 structures were erected on both sides encroaching Avinashi Road. Several structures encroached the road for more than one metre on one side. The TIW-East has registered a case in connection with the accident.

Geethanjali searched suicide details online; got engaged on her birthday
Cops Suspect She Was Not Happy With Her FianceTIMES NEWS NETWORK
Bengaluru: Software engineer Geethanjali U, 27, who fell to her death from the terrace of a 10-storey building in Cessna Business Park, Kadubeesanahalli on Wednesday, had searched online on ways to commit suicide, Marathahalli police said.
Geethanjali had got engaged at her Goa home on Tuesday, which was also her birthday, they added.
Police said on November 14, Geethanjali had searched the net for ways to commit suicide. Cops are, however, yet to establish what forced her to take the extreme step. They suspect her engagement to a man against her wish might have been the trigger.
“We found that she had searched for most effective ways to commit suicide and had looked for tablets. She had searched for their names and the quantity that should be consumed to kill oneself. All these emerged from the internet search history of her cellphone,” a police officer said, adding, “We will also examine her office computer for more details.”
Police said Geethanjali’s father Uday Kumar, a civil engineer with the public works department (PWD) in Goa, and other family members have been tightlipped about what possibly prompted their daughter to take the extreme step.
Cops got to know about her engagement from pictures on her mobile phone. “Geethanjali had also informed a few colleagues about her engagement over online chats,” a police officer said.
“We suspect Geethanjali might have been forced into this engagement. Her parents did not say anything about the bridegroom, though they were asked about him,” a police officer said. They also declined to identify the man, he added.
Geethanjali was from Baina in Goa. She returned to Bengaluru on Wednesday morning, went to her office and then headed to the terrace of Umiya Business Bay – 2 at 12.30pm. Her blood-soaked body was spotted by a security guard.
Geethanjali worked as a networking engineer with ADVA Optical Networking, located on the fourth floor of the same building.
Abdul Ahad, deputy commissioner of police (Whitefield division), said she did commit suicide and there was no foul play. “From preliminary investigation, it appears Geethanjali was upset about her engagement with this particular person and not willing to get married to him. We have not been able to find out the exact reason as her parents are not talking. We hope to get more clarity on this in a day or two,” a police officer said.
Meanwhile, Marathahalli police handed over the body to her parents following postmortem at Vydehi Institute of Medical Science (VIMS) Hospital on Thursday morning. The last rites were performed at the Kudlu crematorium.

Techie found dead at Bengaluru business park a day after her birthday
Geetanjali was found dead at Marathahalli on Wednesday
The body of a 27-year-old software engineer was found at Cessna Business Park in Kadubeesanahalli on Wednesday.
The police suspect that she jumped from the terrace of her 10-storey office building, but have little evidence to corroborate this hypothesis. “We have not ruled out the possibility of foul play and are investigating all angles,” said a police officer.
The deceased, Geetanjali, was a senior engineer in a private firm, which had its office on the fourth floor of the building.
She had applied for leave for two days, including Wednesday.
However, she arrived at the tech park around noon. Twenty minutes later, a few people heard a loud sound and rushed to the spot to find Geetanjali’s body, said the police.
Investigators are trying to piece together the chain of events from the time she entered the building till her death.
According to the police, it was Geetanjali’s birthday on Tuesday, and she had taken leave to go to Goa as her parents were based there. She left the city on Monday night with her aunt who lives in Bannerghatta Park and her younger brother who resides with her in HSR Layout. They returned to Bengaluru on Wednesday at 8.30 a.m, but instead of going to her house, she boarded a bus straight to the office.
“At 12.05 p.m., she called up her aunt to inform her that she had reached her workplace. We asked her colleagues, who said Geetanjali had not come to the office,” the police officer said. “We have questioned her aunt and brother who said there was nothing that could prompt her to kill herself.”
The officer added that the family told them: “We were all happy yesterday celebrating her birthday. We don’t understand what happened.” They suspect that she may have been pushed off the terrace.
Umesh Das a security supervisor at the building said Geetanjali took the emergency exit to reach the terrace. “When I saw her body on the ground, I immediately informed the facility manager of the building and he alerted the police,” said Das, adding that no ambulance was available. “We carried her to Flipkart office nearby and used their ambulance to get to Sakra Hospital in Bellandur.”
The police have little to go by as no cameras had been installed inside the building.
“Unfortunately, there is no CCTV footage that could have helped us find out what happened on the terrace,” said the police
Geethanjali, an engineer employed in Adva Optical Networking, located in the Business Park in Kadubeesanahalli, fell from the building at around 11.30am. According to the police, it is suspected that the techie killed herself, though other possibilities are also being investigated.
“Geethanjali fell from the top most floor of her office building. The company is located in Cessna Business Park. She was working as a senior engineer in the company. The reason for her death is not known. Investigations are still on,” Whitefield DCP Abdul Ahad said.
Umesh, a security guard stationed outside the office building, was the first to see Geethanjali fall.
“I was standing on duty at the ground floor as usual and I saw her fall to the floor. It happened all of a sudden. I was shocked and I immediately informed the Facility Manager of the business park,” Umesh said.
Ganesh, the Facility Manager of Cessna Business Park said that he had then arranged for Geethanjali to be taken to hospital by ambulance.
“I went to the spot and it looked like she was already dead. I immediately called 108 for an ambulance. We waited for a while but no ambulance was there. The Flipkart company is right next to Adva so we got the employee into the Flipkart Ambulance and took her to Sakra Hospital,” Ganesh added.
Up on arriving at Sakra Hospital, Ganesh informed the Marathahalli Police, who took the body for an autopsy.
Currently, the police have registered a case of unnatural death, and hope to obtain a clearer picture once Geethanjali’s family members have been interviewed.
“Her colleagues said that she is from Goa, but also has a brother who lives in Bengaluru. We have informed her parents, who will be coming to Bengaluru as soon as possible. Her brother has also been informed,” said Sub Inspector Nagaraj of the Marathahalli Police Station.
“Once the family members arrive, we will be able to get more details regarding her death,” the Marathahalli Inspector added

BENGALURU: In a suspected case of suicide, a 27-year-old techie allegedly plunged to death from the terrace of a 10-floor office building in the Cessna Business Park in Kadubeesanahalli on Wednesday. The police, however, have not ruled out the possibility of a murder and are investigating all the angles.
The deceased has been identified as Geethanjali, a senior engineer employed in Adva Optical Networking, located on the fourth floor of the building in the business park. She was on leave for two days, including Wednesday.
By around 12 noon she reached the business park, directly went to the terrace and allegedly jumped to her death at around 20 minutes later, said Nagaraj, sub-inspector, Marathahalli police station.
The police are trying to figure out what happened between the time she entered the building and when she allegedly jumped off the terrace. According to police, Geetanjali had her birthday on Tuesday and she had taken a two-day leave to celebrate it with her family in Goa.
She left for Goa on Monday night and celebrated her birthday with the family. Geetanjali returned to Bengaluru on Wednesday morning at 8.30 am, along with her aunt and went to her aunt’s home on Bannerghatta road. At around 10 am she left for her office, police said.
“At 12.05 pm, she called her aunt to inform that she has reached her office. We have enquired with her colleagues but they said Geetanjali was on leave and did not come to the office. She had directly gone to the terrace perhaps with an intention to commit suicide,” Nagaraj said.
As the police informed Geetanjali’s aunt and her younger brother, who stays in Bengaluru, about the death, they were shocked. The police said they interviewed the both Geetanjali’s aunt and her brother, but they said that there was nothing which could prompt her to take the extreme step.
“We were all happy yesterday celebrating her birthday. We don’t understand what happened to her all of a sudden,” Geetanjali’s family members told the police.
The family members of the deceased, however, suspect that someone may have pushed her from the terrace and that they did not believe Geetanjali could commit suicide. So far, the reason for her alleged suicide is yet to be ascertained
