A tragedy occurred in Bengaluru when Sarang Kulkarni, a 29-year-old software engineer originally from Dharwad, took his life by jumping from the 21st floor of an apartment complex on Sarjapur Road. The unmarried techie, troubled by undisclosed issues, had ceased working for the past two months, as shared by his father, Sreekanth.

Having previously worked for a private tech firm, Sarang lived alone in an apartment close to his workplace, while his parents resided in Jeevan Bima Nagar, quite a distance away from his dwelling. Police investigations, though devoid of any suicide notes or messages on Sarang's phone, revealed distress signals within his flat. Law enforcement officers found around 20-25 cigarette butts and several empty beer cans, indicating a state of emotional distress, according to TOI reports.
