MUMBAI: An Irish national and consulting director at a Dutch animation firm was found hanging on Monday in the toilet of his fourth-floor room at a five-star hotel in Powai.

Darren Campbell(40) had been at the hotel for 23 days and was supposed to check out around midnight the same day.

In the room, the police found a suicide note in which Campbell had named an Indian woman who worked at a firm that was making an animation film in partnership with the Dutch company. The woman, who quit a few days ago, was called for questioning by the police. An officer said she had been in touch with Campbell after quitting her job.

“His call record showed they had exchanged 100 text messages and at least 200 calls during his stay in Mumbai. The woman told us they were just good friends and frequently met. The time they met was two days before he ended his life,” the officer said. More info
