He jumped off the eighth floor of Ashoka Estate building at 9.30 am.

Police said he left home after breakfast and reached office around 9 am. In office, he had a cup of tea and wrote a suicide note in English which he stuffed in wallet. Later he went to the stairway on his office floor and jumped off.

He jumped through the gap between the staircase and landed on basement floor on his feet, as a result of which, his bones were crushed and got completely dislocated.
“He was rushed to Ram Manohar Lohia hospital where he was declared brought dead,” said a senior police officer. 

Police found a suicide note written by him where he stated that he committed suicide was in the search of truth.

He also wanted his organs to be donated to needy after his death. “No one is responsible for my death and I am leaving this world in search of truth,” Patil writes in suicide note.

Patil, a bachelor, lived with his roommate Ankit in West Patel Nagar in Central Delhi. He completed his MBBS from Maharashtra in 2009 and later pursued a programme in managament from Indian Institute of Management at Kozhikode.

After finishing the course, he came to Delhi in June to work at Indian Medical Sciences Health information and Consulting Services at Ashoka Estate building.

Ankit, a native of Jaipur in Rajasthan, told police that Patil used to keep to himself lately and was reading extensively on philosophy.

However, he said he had no idea that Patil could ever resort to committing suicide.
