"I Jinten Pal, son of Tarsem Lal, want to say that I have AIDS," reads the suicide note. "I am committing suicide and I am not much educated".
Seeking an apology for his act, Jinten further wrote that those who might have any suspicion relating to him should also get an HIV test done.
The inquiry official in the case, Deepak Kumar said that Jinten committed suicide due to his ignorance and fear as one of Jinten's work associate, at a previous work place, was HIV positive.
Jinten gave a passing reference to the person in his suicide letter including mentioning the employer from whom this associate acquired the disease. Jinten, however, maintained that he (Jinten) did "no wrong thing".
"The person about whom Jinten talked about in the note is AIDS patient. Jinten was not aware how AIDS spreads and thought that he had acquired the disease from this associate," Kumar said.
Neither police nor the family members of Jinten have so far been able to trace the HIV test report, which Jinten mentioned.
"We have no idea from where he got the test done," Kumar said.
Jinten's father, Tarsem Lal, who works as a physical training instructor in a school after retiring from the Army said that he came to know of the suicide on Wednesday morning. "The police broke open the door and found Jinten hanging," said Tarsem Lal.
