The 25-year-old reportedly used deodorants to cover the smell from the dead copy and the entire killing process was described in the suicide note.

"He mentioned that since his childhood he had been lonely and had no friends. He also wrote about his father and the problems he had with him. After his father died, he stated, his mother did not give him money and both he and his mother were suffering from a disease," a police officer told NDTV.

Kshitij’s father had died around 10 years ago and he was living with his mother in the area ever since. In the suicide note, he wrote that his mother had "gone through a lot and he wanted to free her".
