“In his suicide note,Ruzan has said they have been indebted to the tune of Rs 71 lakh by some Dr Rajnikant Nair and so he is committing suicide,” said Rabari.

He added: “The family did not interact much and so the neighbours do not know much about them. Their background can only be known after one of them gains consciousness and the doctors give us permission to talk. But investigations are on to find out Dr Rajnikant Nair whose name has been mentioned in the suicide note.”
