A young musician son of a retired IIT professor jumped to death from the 13th floor of a residential high-rise in Sector 53 here on Wednesday.

Twenty-seven-year-old Sumed Prasad lived with his parents at Parsavnath Exotica on Golf Course Road. His father, Surender Prasad, is a retired IIT-Delhi professor and his elder brother Saurabh works in the United States. 

“The deceased left a suicide note apologising for not being a good son. He was a graduate and a musician. He generally practised at home and was undergoing treatment for depression”, said Rajesh Pal, Assistant Commissioner of Police (DLF), Gurgaon.

The incident came to light when Mr. Prasad heard the news that a boy had jumped from the building and was shocked to see the body of his own son.
