Wipro and HCL Engineer’s Death-Defying Jump from Building Sends Shockwaves – Here’s the Jaw-Dropping Reason Behind It!
Tragic Loss: Two Young IT Engineers, Affiliated with Wipro and HCL, Pass Away in Unfortunate Incidents
Bangalore: In a deeply saddening turn of events, two young IT engineers, one associated with Wipro and the other with HCL, lost their lives in incidents involving their office buildings.
The Wipro engineer, Vishal Yadav (29), held a BE in electronics and hailed from Madhya Pradesh.
He had been working with Wipro as a Business Analyst since May 17, 2004, and had recently taken a two-month leave.
Surprisingly, Vishal had submitted his resignation via email and was scheduled to be relieved of his duties on August 31.

On Wednesday, around 10:20 pm, Vishal jumped from the top floor of Wipro’s S-II building, which consists of 12 floors. Security supervisors rushed to the scene upon hearing a loud noise and discovered Vishal on the ground with injuries.
Despite being taken to the hospital, he was declared deceased by the attending doctor. The doctor explained, “Due to multiple head, spinal, and thigh fractures, he might have succumbed within minutes of the fall.”
The HCL (Hindustan Computers Limited) engineer, Vikas Kumar Sharma (26), originally from Bihar’s Munger district, had been working as a Senior Network Analyst since January 1, 2009.
He resided with a cousin in Delhi’s Katwaria Sarai area. Although he was officially off-duty on Wednesday (August 19), Vikas decided to report to work.
The company cab dropped Vikas off at the office around 4:30 am. At approximately 5:50 am, Vikas jumped from the 5th floor of the office building. He was rushed to a hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead upon arrival.
In both cases, the police have been investigating the cause of death as no suicide note or related threats have been found thus far. Regarding Vishal’s case, the police have formulated eight questions and forwarded them to Wipro’s human resources department.
However, even after 24 hours, they have been unable to obtain any personal information about the deceased individual. An HR executive from Wipro explained, “We have been instructed not to disclose any information or photographs of the employee.
He had simply resigned and was serving his notice period.” A police officer stated, “We are not ruling out the possibility of foul play. There are numerous unanswered questions, and it is up to Wipro to address these doubts.”
Regarding Vikas’ case, Ashok Tripathi, the Superintendent of Police (City) in Noida, mentioned, “The company officials did not inform the police about the incident.
It was the authorities at Max Hospital who notified us.” In 2009, there were reports of two suicides involving employees of prominent IT companies.
There have been instances of engineers facing harassment and being coerced into resigning from their positions.
Just last week, a former Wipro employee informed the media about the unfortunate manner in which they were let go from the company.
