Bangkok/New Delhi: Tata Motors Managing Director Karl Slym died today after falling from the 22nd floor of a five-star hotel in Bangkok, where he had gone to attend a board meeting of the company's Thailand arm.  

Slym, 51, died after the fall from the hotel in Yannawa district, police were quoted as saying on the website of The Nation newspaper.

Police said they were alerted at 7.45 am that a “foreigner fell from the 22nd to the fourth floor” of the hotel, the report said.

It was reported that “police found a suicide note” in his room and his wife was still in shock.  

An initial investigation showed Slym checked into the hotel with his wife on January 24 and was scheduled to check out today, the report said.

Bloomberg quoted a company spokeswoman to say that Slym was staying in Shangri-La hotel when the incident took place.  

His post-mortem will take place tomorrow, the company said without giving more details.
