Mumbai: A 56-year-old builder from Matunga, Mukesh Savla, committed suicide by jumping from his 15th floor residence on Wednesday afternoon. Savla, a resident of Lakshmi Niketan CHS, jumped from the balcony of his 15th floor house around 3 pm on Wednesday. According to police, the security guard of the building heard a loud thud.
When he ran to check, he found Savla's body lying in a pool of blood. Savla was then rushed to Sion Hospital, where he was declared dead before admission. The builder is survived by his wife. Matunga Police, who are investigating the case, have not found any suicide note. "We have registered an accidental death report (ADR) and begun
