Gaurav Tiwari, the Paranormal Society founder who was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the bathroom of his Dwarka house on July 8, had committed suicide by hanging himself inside his bathroom, police said. Based on the preliminary autopsy report, police said his death did not involve any foul play although it is yet to ascertain the reason behind Tiwari taking the extreme step. Sources said investigators found a stole in the bathroom and suspect he hanged himself with it. Those police are yet to establish the sequence of events that led to his death.

“The preliminary autopsy report confirms that he committed suicide. All his family members, including his parents and wife, were present in the Dwarka flat when he hanged himself using a piece of cloth,” a senior police official said. But no case has been registered in connection with the incident even as a legal proceeding under section 174 of CrPC is underway. A senior police official said that Tiwari’s family members were not happy with his ghostbusting activities, often late into the night, as he was not earning much.

According to police sources, on the night of July 6, Tiwari had gone to Janakpuri to conduct a paranormal investigation and had returned home at 1 am.
“The same day, he allegedly had an argument with his mother who did not approve of him going out so late at night. Tiwari had later called his father and said he is no longer a child,” said the sources.
