Facebook Live Video, Then Student Jumped Off 19th Floor At Taj, Ends life

Vastavam Web: 24-year-old Arjun Bhardwaj, an engineering student, checked into a suite on the 19th floor of hotel Taj Lands End in Mumbai before daybreak on Monday. Hours later, he broke a window and jumped. Security guards who heard a loud “thud” rushed and found his body.

Before jumping around 6.20 pm, Arjun Bhardwaj, whose family is in Bengaluru, posted a macabre “suicide tutorial” on Facebook. “Step 1, write notes to people…step 2, get drunk, Step 3…enjoy the view, Step 4..have bacon pasta,” he says in the short video. He is in a bathrobe, smoking and drinking from a bottle of wine. “See you guys on the other side,” is the last thing he says before the video ends.

He reportedly used a chair to break the double-pane window.The police say in one of the notes found scattered around the suite, he said “sorry” to his parents. He also wrote: “I’m a drug addict…I don’t want to live anymore and hence committing suicide.” He had allegedly been depressed for some time and had come prepared.
