The police team, who is present at the site of the incident, have recovered a suicide note from him that states that he took the brutal step as his wife used to suspect him. The letter further read that by killing them all he put a tape to their mouth thus silencing them, according to Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Sudhir Kumar Singh.
