The police said Anirban was seen climbing on the barricades of the bridge as he tried to kill himself. The police reached on time and made him get down.

Blah's statement was also recorded and he was released. The Police asked his family to seek professional counseling for him.
Before the police rescued Anirban, the Bollywood talent manager reportedly sent a suicide note to a newspaper.
He wrote in the note, "Without trying to justify any of my actions, I just want to say that I have tried to be the best person I can be. I didn't have the strength to cope with what happened to me as a child in a healthy way. I never was able to separate sex from power, to make it a part of love, and somewhere along the way one part of me turned into a monster.
Maybe ... I am bipolar. Because I know how much love I have to give. To my friends and to my family to everyone. I have tried to be the best friend I can and the best colleague and the best person I can. But unfortunately the monster inside me keeps resurfacing and I've tried to bury him and kill him but I can't.
I wasn't good enough. And I am the only one to blame ... I know no one believes me, but that monster was a part of me, and there was goodness and kindness in me.
To anyone I may have hurt, I am sorry. This isn't revenge for you. This is justice.
You should just know that the stories you hear are worse than the truth but whatever the truth, it still makes me a monster in my own eyes. Know though that this monster has this part of him that is pure still, and that my love for you is so great that I cannot forgive myself the hurt I have caused you. There are no justifications. You deserved better.
You will find my body somewhere near Vashi creek. My licence will be with me as identification plus my tattoo. I am wearing blue jeans and a t shirt. The monster inside me has won against the other part of me for too long, it's time to kill it once and for all."
