Gaurav Tiwari, CEO of Indian Paranormal Society was found dead under mysterious circumstances on July 7 in his residence in Dwarka, Delhi.
Around 11 am on Thursday, Gaurav’s family heard a loud noise from his bathroom, and when they opened the door by force, they found the 32-year-old lying unconscious on the floor. The family rushed him to a hospital but doctors were unable to revive him. The police found a black line around his neck and suspect it was asphyxia.
While the police suspect he may have committed suicide, his father told The Times of India, "We don't believe in ghosts etc, but his death has left us shocked and puzzled."
Gaurav got married recently in January. "He told his wife a month ago that a negative force was pulling him towards it,” his father was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
“He had said he was trying to control it but seemed unable to do so. My daughter-in-law ignored it thinking he was just depressed due to work overload and did not tell us about it," the father was quoted as saying. He also denied the possibility of his son having committing suicide.
Gaurav is a paranormal investigator who has apparently visited over 6,000 ‘haunted’ houses across the world, and participated in various TV shows including MTV’s Girl’s Night Out, hosted by Ranvijay, and Haunted Weekends, by Sunny Leone.
