Grewal was found hanging in the bedroom by his wife, who tried to save him. As per reports, as Grewals wife started screaming, neignours rushed to the spot but none volunteered to help as they suspected that the actor had contracted coronavirus.
Grewals friend Manjit Singh told Spotboye: He was very normal that evening; went to his room and locked it from inside. That time his wife was in the kitchen preparing food. When she heard the noise of chair, she rushed to the bedroom and held him. She screamed a lot for help. The neighbours did come hearing the noise but no one came forward to help or get him down.
Finally, a security guard came forward and brought the body down by cutting the dupatta, which was used by Grewal to hang himself. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
Pradip Tidar, a senior inspector at Kharghar police station, said: We will record his wifes statement to ascertain if he was suffering through depression or had any financial problem. We have registered an accidental death report. No suicide note was found at the spot and further investigations are being done.
