A top executive of India’s Tata Motors, who plunged from the 22nd floor of an upscale Bangkok hotel, had left an apparent suicide note, Thai police said yesterday. Tata managing director Karl Slym, 51, died early on Sunday at the hotel where he was attending a board meeting. “Initially, we can only assume that he committed suicide,” Thai police Lieutenant Somyot Boonnakaew said. “The window was small and he had to try hard to get through it.” The apparent suicide letter, found at the scene, had been sent for analysis to confirm it was written by Slym, he said. Police believe his wife was in the room at the time of his death but said she was too “shocked” to answer questions yesterday. – Sapa-AFP
