A British executive at Indian car giant Tata Motors has died in a fall from a luxury hotel room in Thailand.

Managing director Karl Slym was in Bangkok for a board meeting of the company's Thai affiliate, and police say his death might have been suicide

The Thai police forensic unit said Mr Slym died from a broken skull and injuries to his brain and other internal organs after falling from his 22nd floor room.

Police said investigators' initial assumption was that Mr Slym killed himself because of a suicide note left in the hotel room referring to domestic problems. He said the letter was being analysed to confirm it was written by Mr Slym.
