The police have taken the suicide note, Julka’s laptop and his mobile into their possession.
Julka had invested money in the share market and had suffered huge losses last year.

In his suicide note, Julka has mentioned that he had availed many loans.

The Sector 56 police later handed the body to Julka’s family members.
