The absence of a suicide note also raised several questions on the suicide theory.

Despite repeated pleas from his family members, the cops did not bother to investigate further into the case and are about to close it shortly. Some sources, quoting his colleagues, have revealed that Surya was under tremendous pressure on his job and even approached other TV channels for a job.
