A 24-year-old engineering student, Arjun Bhardwaj, allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the 19th floor of hotel Taj Lands End in suburban Bandra, Mumbai on 3 April.

Reportedly, he broke a window and jumped.

Arjun had posted a suicide tutorial on Facebook before taking the plunge. The video shows Arjun saying, "step 1- write notes to people. Step 2- get drunk. Step 3 -enjoy the view. Step 4- have bacon pasta."

He can be seen smoking and drinking wine. His last words were, "See you guys on the other side."

The student, who hailed from Bengaluru, was studying at a college in suburban Vile Parle, a senior police official said.

Bhardwaj had booked a suite on the 19th floor of a star hotel in the wee hours on Monday. He jumped from the room by breaking the glass of the window around 6:30 PM, the official said. Police has recovered a suicide note.

"I'm a drug addict..I don't want to live anymore and hence committing suicide," the official said, quoting the suicide note purportedly written by him.

The hotel's security personnel said they heard a loud thud on the premises and soon rushed to the spot where they found Bhardwaj lying in pool of blood.

He was taken to nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead.

Bhardwaj had submitted proper documents before checking in, which helped the officials identify him.
