BENGALURU: A day after her birthday, a 27-year-old techie fell to her death from her office building in Cessna Tech Park near Bellandur on Wednesday. Police suspect that Geetanjali, a native of Goa, committed suicide. Abdul Ahad, DCP, Whitefield said Geetanjali was employed as a senior engineer at Adva Optical Networks. Ahad said the incident occurred around 11.30 am, when Geetanjali reportedly jumped off the 10th floor. She was rushed to the nearby Sakra Hospital, where she was declared dead.  

A police source said Geetanjali had visited her home at Marmugao in Goa along with her aunt Vijaylakshmi to celebrate her birthday with her family. They both returned to Bengaluru on Wednesday morning. While her aunt went to her residence on Bannerghatta Road, Geetanjali came to her office. She then called her mother and aunt to say she had reached home, after which she fell from the building. Police said that Vijaylakshmi did not notice anything amiss in Geetanjali’s behaviour. 


Ahad said Geetanjali came to office despite having applied for leave on Wednesday. He added that her colleagues at the firm had been questioned, and by all accounts, her behaviour had seemed normal to them. The officer said her parents were due to arrive in the city from Goa on Wednesday night, after which a post-mortem of the body would be conducted.

A police official said a security guard on duty at that point in time saw her fall and informed the authorities concerned at the tech park. A representative of Adva Optical Networks said, “A very unfortunate incident has occurred in our organisation and all the employees are in a state of shock.”
