One of the writers of the famous TV show, ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ has died by suicide. The family of the writers has told the media that Abhishek was the victim of blackmail and cyber-crime. On November 27th, the writer’s body was found hanging in his Mumbai apartment and a suicide note was found along with the body that indicated that Abhishek was having difficulties in his life. The note mentioned that the writer was suffering from financial losses and trouble. Abhishek’s brother, Jenis said that he became aware of his brother’s troubles after his death as he started receiving phone calls regarding the same.
Jenis said, “He said, “I checked my brother’s mails because ever since he passed away, I got multiple phone calls from different numbers demanding to be paid back loans he owed someone. One call was a number registered in Bangladesh, one in Myanmar, and others were from different states of India.”
He further added, ” From what I understood from the email records, my brother first took a small loan from one of the ‘easy loan’ apps that charge a very high rate of interest. I looked at the transactions between them and my brother closely after that. I noticed that they kept sending small amounts despite my brother not applying for the loans. Their interest rates are as high as 30%.”
A report has been registered in the Mumbai police station and the police have confirmed that the case is underway. The family has given all the details to the police station like the phone numbers of the unknown callers and the deceased bank account details. The case has been registered in Charkop police station. The family members have told that unknown callers are demanding them to pay back the amount as the writer has made his family guarantors in a loan.
