According to India Today, Nahar wrote in Hindi: “I do not wish to live anymore. I have seen a lot of happy and sad moments in life.. I have faced all the problems but the trauma I am going through now is intolerable. I know committing suicide is cowardice, I also wanted to live but there is no point in living where there is no happiness and self-respect.. my #wife Kanchan Sharma and her mother Vinu Sharma have never understood me neither have they ever tried understanding me. My #wife is of hyper nature, her personality is different than that of mine which doesn’t match at all. Every single day–morning and evening– there is distress that I am not able to endure anymore.. There is no fault of #kanchan in this as her nature is like this that all these are very normal to her but this is no more normal to me. I have also seen really bad days for many years throughout my stay in Mumbai but I have never been broken before.”

Nahar is survived by his wife Kanchan Sharma.
