"He used to quarrel with his wife who worked at a shop. The couple do not have children. On Saturday morning too, they had a quarrel after which she left for work. In the afternoon he jumped from the sliding window of his apartment and suffered grievous injuries to his head, hands and legs," the Inspector said.

A video footage of the incident showed Kumar jumping from the window of his apartment and falling on to the ground. Officials said that some local residents might have captured the video while the man was jumping.

Kumar was shifted to a nearby hospital but succumbed to his injuries there, said Janaiah, adding that it looked like a case of suicide due to depression, as per preliminary investigations.

The official said that no suicide note had been found.
