According to police, Sibal had lost his job as a General Manager in the Sales department at Tata Motors in April and had been suffering from depression, which tempted him to take this extreme step.

To the nearby KEM hospital, Sibal was rushed immediately where he was pronounced dead. Sibal used to stay on the sixth floor of the building with his wife and two children - a 14-year-old daughter and a nine-year-old son, reports say.
“We found a suicide note at his residence, which said that no one should be blamed for his suicide and that he was taking the extreme step as he was depressed,” said Dilip Ugale, senior PI, Kalachowki police to the paper. Ugale also added that he had attempted suicide earlier.
Sibal was being treated at PD Hinduja hospital. “He hadn’t left home ever since he lost his job. He would hardly sleep at night, fearing about the future of his children,” added Ugale. An accidental death report (ADR) case has been registered by the police to further investigate the case.
