Chennai Techie Promises Aunt A ‘Surprise’, Then Jumps Off Ninth Floor


A 27-year-old IT worker jumped off the ninth floor of her office in Chennai on Monday. R Priyanka, who was from Andhra Pradesh, was reportedly upset about her family arranging a match for her.

CCTV footage from the building at Thoraipakkam shows Priyanka jumping around 4.45 pm. Her colleagues called the police.

Priyanka had been engaged last month.

Before she jumped, she reportedly called her aunt in Andhra Pradesh and cryptically said she was going to surprise everyone.

“We’ve not recovered any suicide note. Personal reasons appear to have driven her. We would further investigate after the postmortem. We are yet to check her computer,” a police officer told NDTV.
