A young and successful NRI stockbroker who jumped to his death in London feared losing his job at a top German bank after he was sent home as a punishment over a silly prank “I’m hot,I’m hot” which he posted on a financial website.

Anjool Malde was an Oxford graduate who was preparing to celebrate his 25th birthday worked for Deutsche Bank,leapt from the top floor of eight-storey Coq d’Argent restaurant near the Bank of England on Sunday.

Investigators think Anjool’s prank “I’m hot,I’m hot” was probably a reference to his client being on a successful investment run,Daily Mail reported.

Malde’s client,who works for Brevan Howard,a leading hedge fund management firm,did not see the funny side and made a formal complaint to the company which runs the discussion forum.

The resulting investigation suggested that Malde had impersonated the client from his office computer at Deutsche Bank. This prompted the bank’s bosses to send Malde home on Friday pending a full investigation.

Colleagues believe he was convinced he would lose his job. One added: ‘It was a mildly offensive remark which triggered a tragic chain of events.’

Another source said: ‘On the face of it,it was a very trivial incident. But in the City,issues which involve potential loss of money or reputation are taken very seriously.’
