He was clearly worried about the business. He had felt that it was his fault,” coroner Shirley Radcliffe said at the inquest at Westminster Coroners Court in London.The businessman, philanthropist and film producerhad been treated by consultant psychiatric specialists and was “self-admitted” to a hospital on October 4, 2015, after his wife became concerned for his welfare but was released on October 16, Evening Standard reported.Doctors said he had not expressed suicidal intentions to them because his family was too important to him.Angads wife Michelle told the inquest that he had felt responsible for the loss of jobs for his employees andhad sold his four sports cars, saying: “I dont deserve nice things if so many workers have got to lose their job.”The court was told he had not left a suicide note and police found that his death was “non-suspicious”.There was no alcohol in the blood and no other drugs.
