Bangkok: Karl Slym, Managing Director of Tata Motors, who died here yesterday under mysterious circumstances, may have committed suicide, Thai police indicated today.

51-year-old Slym's body was found by the staff of a five-star hotel on the balcony of the fourth floor after plunging from the 22nd floor. He was here to attend a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Thai subsidiary of his company.

Police have found an apparent suicide note at the scene which has been sent for analysis to confirm that it was written by Slym. “Initially, we can only assume that he committed suicide,” a police officer said.

Police ruled out murder as the cause of the death of Slym, who allegedly fell out of a window of his room at the riverside Shangri-la Hotel. Officials told the media that the window was small and “he had to try hard to get through it”.

The hand-written note was reportedly found in the room which Slym and his wife of 30 years had checked into on January 24. They were to check out yesterday.
