Mukesh Pandey, the District Magistrate of Buxar, Bihar who was found dead near a railway track had recorded a lengthy video of himself speaking about committing suicide.
In the five minutes long video, which was likely recorded in Buxar, where he was posted, Pandey talks about the tension between his parents and his wife.
He also said that nobody should be blamed for his suicide.
Pandey, a 2012 batch IAS officer had travelled to Delhi on Thursday and his body was found near a railway track in Ghaziabad.
A suicide note found on Pandey’s body stated that he “was disappointed with life and had no faith in humanity”.
On Thursday he had checked into a five-star hotel in Delhi, from where he went missing later in the day.
Police began searching for him after a relative alerted them claiming that Pandey had messaged him on WhatsApp saying that he was going to commit suicide.
