The police found two suicide notes, one in Nitin’s car, where he shot himself, and the other at his residence. He had reportedly blamed his wife and in-laws for driving him to take this extreme step, ahead of the court hearing of their legal separation on the same day.

The report quotes a police officer as saying, “In both suicide notes, of four pages each, Chauhan blamed his wife and in-laws of harassing him,” adding that he accused them of filing false cases and not allowing him to meet his son.

A case has been registered against Nitin’s in-laws and the weapon has been sent for forensic examination.
