Even if I am accused of charges levelled by the women colleagues after an investigation, people in my office would still see me with doubts. It will be immensely difficult for me to continue going to the office and to see my wife suffer because of something I haven’t done, the deceased executive wrote in the note.

Swaroop Raj, who is originally from Kerala, had married Kriti a couple of years ago. Both worked in the same IT firm.
