WAS IT SUICIDE?

Gaurav Tiwari, who once shared screen space with Bollywood actress Sunny Leone on the MTV show “Haunted Weekends,” was “perfectly normal” and could not have killed himself, according to his family.
Father of Gaurav Tiwari,Uday Tiwari said : “We heard a loud thud and rushed to the bathroom. My daughter-in-law tried to peep in and found him lying unconscious. We somehow managed to open the door and revive him but he did not respond. He was taken to hospital but did not survive.”.
Although a senior police officer said that :“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 that Tiwari’s family members were not happy with his ghostbusting activities, often late into the night, as he was not earning much.
Recently married Gaurav Tiwari used to stay out ghost-hunting quite late into the night and it led to some marital friction. He was investigating a suspected haunted house in Delhi’s Janakpuri on Wednesday and returned home at around 1:30 am at night,which triggered a fight with his wife.
