Mumbai: A man, suf­fer­ing from de­pres­sion, al­legedly com­mit­ted sui­cide by jumping into the sea from the Ban­dra- Worli Sealink ( BWSL) bridge early Mon­day morn­ing, but the ef­forts of cops and fire bri­gade to trace him failed to yield any re­sults, the po­lice said. Chances of his sur­vival are bleak, the po­lice said. Ac­cord­ing to the Worli po­lice, the per­son has been iden­ti­fied as 45- year- old Vikram Va­sudev, who halted his car on the sea link at about 6 am and sud­denly jumped into the sea. Va­sudev, a res­i­dent of Prab­hadevi in cen­tral Mumbai, was un­der de­pres­sion fol­low­ing the death of his son due to brain tu­mour four years ago. He had also been fac­ing a fi­nan­cial cri­sis, for the past one month, the po­lice said. Quot­ing a se­cu­rity guard de­ployed at the BWSL, the po­lice said that Va­sudev halted his ve­hi­cle and stood near the bound­ary of the bridge. The guard tried to stop him.
