Mumbai builder Paras Porwal commits suicide by jumping off building in Mumbai: On Thursday, 57-year-old builder Paras Porwal allegedly committed suicide by jumping from the 23rd floor of a building in Mumbai, according to PTI. Police later found a note at his gym in which he mentioned that nobody was responsible for his death and no enquiry should be made with anyone.
Porwal, a migrant from Rajasthan, spent his early years in Mumbai in a chawl at Ambewadi in Kalachowki. He sold imitation jewellery on local trains and later rose to become a popular face in the city’s real estate and political circles in the 90s. Porwal started his career with minor construction-related work like providing flooring tiles to other developers. His first big break came from Paras Gundecha at Kalachowki.
Porwal, 57, reportedly leapt to his death from the balcony of the gym at his residence in Shanti Kamal housing society building near Chinchpokli railway station at around 6am. The body was taken to a civic-run hospital for post mortem. The reason behind Porwal’s extreme step is being investigated.
Dnyaneshwar Chavan, the Additional Commissioner of Police for the Central Region, told the Indian Express that Porwal likely died by suicide due to personal issues. He said that the builder had left a note, but that no one was blamed in it. Chavan added that the Kalachowkie police are investigating the matter. Porwal had undertaken many redevelopment projects of old buildings in areas including Parel, Chinchpokli, and Byculla in Mumbai.
