Pandey’s body was found yesterday from the railway tracks about one km from Ghaziabad railway station, the police said. A purported suicide note was also recovered from the spot.
In the suicide note, Pandey, a 2012-batch IAS officer, had written that he was fed up with his life and had lost his “belief on human existence,” the police said.
