Patil, 78, has named two activists of Congress for driving him to take the extreme step, a police official said quoting a suicide note purportedly written by the ADCCB chairman.
The incident came to light this afternoon when family members of Patil saw him lying unconscious at their Samarth Nagar residence, a Kranti Chowk police official said, adding that Patil was frothing from his mouth.
He was shifted to a nearby private hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival, he said.
