Abhilesh was found hanging from the window of his bedroom on Saturday morning, with his hands tied behind using a shawl and his feet touching the floor. The police, forensic experts, and dog squad had carried out inquest procedures on Saturday.

“His parents, Arulanandakumar and Shiny, have claimed that there were no issues at home whatsoever which could have driven him to take the extreme step,” said police sources.
