This will be my final Facebook Live video and sorry If I have hurt anyone.” About false messages that are being circulated about him he said before ending his video that, “they are claiming that I demanded Rs 60,000 to attend an event organised by an orphanage, which is not true. Even a status updated on my Facebook page is being interpreted in a wrong way. I never imagined committing suicide in my life, but these people are not letting me lead a peaceful life. At least let my death become a lesson for you all.”
