Pune, Aug 7 (IANS) Unable to cope with the work pressure, a young software engineer committed suicide by jumping from the seventh floor of his office building here, the police said. Twentysix-year-old Sandeep Shelke, employed as a team manager with leading software outsourcing company Persistent Systems Pvt.
