He was to appear before a promotion committee for the final assessment, but he came late for the exercise. Minutes later, he sat inside the car and then took some drugs. After a few minutes, he stretched on the driver’s seat and that was the end. We got to know when people started gathering to look at him. We had to lock the gates to prevent more crowds from pouring in.”
