The ‘suicide note’, in which Singh stated that h would jump into the Yamuna, sent police into a tizzy. Three divers searched for the body in the river but did not find him. Four days later on July 22, Ishwar was found alive at a relative’s place at Bhiwadi in Rajasthan.

Police said Singh has been to jail twice.

“He was arrested for stealing a Mahindra Scorpio on November 7. He came out on bail but was arrested again under the Gangster Act on June 5.,” said Abhishek Yadav, superintendent of police (rural), Gautam Budh Nagar.

The police said Singh said he faked his death to evade arrest in the two cases.

“He confessed that he wrote the suicide note as he wanted to escape the trial in the criminal cases. In the suicide note, he accused the former in charge of Knowledge Park police station of demanding money and implicating him in cases. All the allegations were baseless,” said Yadav.

Singh’s father Rajveer Singh, however, said that his son is innocent and the police are implicating him.

“He left home to commit suicide. But he went to a relative’s place, who stopped him from taking the extreme step,” said Rajveer Singh.
