His last rites were performed at the Banashankari electric crematorium on Thursday evening. Unable to bear the death of her husband, Chaitra too ended her life on Thursday. “Around 10.30 pm, Chaitra’s mother Manjula went to her room and was shocked to find her hanging from the ceiling. She left a note stating, 'Please wait for me, I am following you. I miss you’, which is addressed to her husband,” the police said.  A case of unnatural death has been registered at the Banashankari police station.
