BENGALURU: Upset over her boyfriend’s death in an accident, a 21-year-old woman allegedly committed suicide on Monday by jumping from the 11th floor of a posh building on Kasturba Road.

The incident took place at Prestige Obelisk near the Cubbon Park police station. Puja Jadhav, a native of Kalaburgi, was employed as an ‘inside sales representative’ at Babajob Services. The building houses one of their Bengaluru offices.

After lunch around 2.45 pm, she went to the 11th floor and spoke to one of her colleagues, despairing that she could not live without Charan.

Puja told Vasu, “I want to speak to Charan.”

Vasu asked her to control herself and think about the future. “He (Charan) has left the world and will not come back,” Vasu told Puja. She disconnected the call and went to the terrace. After a while, she allegedly plunged from the terrace, crashing near the entrance where security guards were on duty.

Pengg, a guard hailing from Odisha, told Express he heard a loud sound when he was opening the gates for a vehicle. “I turned around and found a woman near the entrance, her head severely injured. I alerted our officials and they informed the police,” he said.

Police said they had found a death note in one of the pockets of her jeans. Puja sought an apology from her father. “Forgive me Pappa. I can’t live without Charan and have decided to end my life,” is what it purportedly states.

A senior policeman said Puja had been in love with Charan N B, a resident of JC Nagar and recruiter for Babajob. She had scribbled ‘Charan and Puja’ on her left hand before jumping, he said.

Charan was killed on Sunday when a speeding Tata Ace vehicle rammed into his bike on the Hunasamaranahalli service road near Yelahanka. He was going to Nandi Hills with his friend Krishna Yadav when the accident occurred. Yadav, a native of Bihar, had come to the city on Saturday night, and was riding pillion.

Puja had attended his last rites and stopped talking. “We are investigating all angles,” the policeman said.

Access Question

A spokesperson for Babajob told Express, “We are deeply saddened by the loss. Puja had joined Babajob in August 2015 and worked from our Residency Road office.”

It is also said that a few days ago Puja and Charam had sought a transfer to the Kasturba Road office. 

Security staff said only employees working at the Prestige building were allowed in. “We have to check how Puja got access to the 11th floor. We are also verifying CCTV footage,” an insider said.
