A 26-year-old Indian Institute Technology (IIT) killed himself on Monday by jumping off a 23rd floor of a posh apartment complex in Gurugram. Ankit Wadhwa, who hailed from Rajasthan, was about to sit for his GMAT (Graduate management Admission Test) on Monday.

Ankit, who used to work in Mumbai, came to Gurgaon on Sunday to appear for the exam. He was staying with his uncle in the DLF Magnolias apartments, Golf Course road, from where he jumped off and died on the spot.
As per reports, the deceased was struggling with depression and was also dissatisfied with his job.

“Initial investigation suggested that Wadhwa was suffering from acute depression following which he took such an extreme step. It was also found that he was not satisfied with his current job profile. He was grappling with depression for the last 16 months,” said police officer Gaurav Phogat.

“Ankit was also planning higher studies for which he was sitting for an entrance examination at a management institute,” added Phogat.

As of now, the parents of the deceased have been called and an initial investigation under Section 174 of the IPC has been initiated at the Sushant Lok police station.

Ankit Wadhwa, a 2015 IIT Kanpur pass out, reportedly worked with JP Morgan in Mumbai for over two years. He quit that job in March.
