BANKER LEAPS TO DEATH.. WITH A GLASS OF BUBBLYBy Greig Box Turnbull, Mirror.co.uk, 9/07/2009
He feared the sack
A whizkid who feared he might be sacked leapt to his death from an eight-storey restaurant holding a glass of champagne and dressed in his best City suit.
Stockbroker Anjool Malde, 24, was also co-founder of a firm running parties and company events.
He had been ordered by bosses at Deutsche Bank to leave early on Friday after "an inquiry into an IT matter".
On Sunday he walked into the Coq d'Argent near the Bank of England in London and ordered bubbly. Then he strolled on to the terrace and jumped.
Anjool's psychologist mum Naina and art teacher dad Bharat, of Yarm, Teesside, said of their only son: "We're absolutely devastated. He meant everything to us. Apparently he donned a Hugo Boss suit with matching designer accessories, treated himself to a glass of champagne and jumped from the eighth floor. Style meant everything to him and that's how he chose to make his exit."
Anjool, who lived London and Marbella, once interviewed pop star Geri Halliwell at the Oxford Union.
The high achiever had launched a string of online firms and was co-editor of a selfhelp book, Racing Towards Excellence. He had been due to hold a 25th birthday party last night.
Deutsche Bank chiefs confirmed he had been asked to leave the office and said they were deeply saddened.
