A 29-year-old Call Centre employee, who was believed to be in love with a girl, chose to end his life on Valentine's Day by jumping from the fourth floor of his office premises in Salarpuria building near Forum Mall in the City on Thursday.

Police has identified the deceased as Shuboor Rahman Rizwi, a native of Bhopal, who was the team leader for Acquina Call Centre company since 2009. The incident shocked the other employees, who saw Rizwi climbing out of the window into the open area on the fourth floor and jumping down while talking to someone on the phone. He died on the spot.

Shocked passers-by rushed him to St John's hospital where he was declared brought dead.

The police found a suicide note from Rizwi which he had written to his girl friend, stating that he loved her too much and cannot live without her and hence was ending his life. Rizwi apologised to her for his extreme step and even requested her not to worry. The police suspect that a break up in relationship could be the reason for the suicide.

Rizwi was living with his two brothers in a rented house in BTM Layout. The Adugodi police have taken up a case and are investigating.
