On the other hand, the deceased man named Balu Gamit (69)  was returning from a morning walk, when Rathi jumped from the 13th floor of the apartment to her death. The report mentioned that Rathi had arrived in Ahmedabad with her husband and four-year-old daughter. She was undergoing treatment for insomnia among other illnesses. Her family suspects that she took the extreme step as she had not slept for a fortnight and was mentally disturbed. They also said that other illnesses may have driven her to commit suicide.

The police have registered a case of accidental death and sent both bodies for postmortem. They are said to be examining the footage from the CCTV cameras installed in the building.
