A 29-year-old musician from Bengaluru allegedly committed suicide today by jumping off the 12th floor of a high-rise building in suburban Bandra here, the police said.
Karan Joseph took the extreme step by jumping off a window of the flat, owned by a company where his friend Rishi Shah works, at Bullock Road, they said.
Karan was residing at the flat since the last month and was reportedly depressed, said senior police inspector of Bandra police station Pandit Thackrey.
At around 8.30 am, Karan along with Rishi and other friends was watching television in the living room. After sometime, he got up, went near the window and jumped off it.
He was reportedly in an inebriated state, the official said.
Reacting to the incident, singer and music director Vishal Dadlani tweeted, “Destroyed. Karan Joseph, one of the most incredible Indian musicians, has committed suicide. Played with Pentagram on our MTV Unplugged set.”
