On checking, the neighbours discovered his lifeless body and alerted his daughter, who works in an IT firm in Sector 66. She rushed home and took him to Fortis Hospital, Mohali, where doctors declared him brought dead.

“We have checked the house thoroughly but have not found any suicide note,” said the SHO.

In a statement to the police, the deceased’s wife said that he seemed upset since the past few days but did not share anything with the family. He, however, seemed normal in the morning and had breakfast as usual, she added.

Apart from his wife and daughter, Narinder is survived by his son, who is a Class-11 student at a private school in Chandigarh.
