Arpan was alone in the house as his mother had left for her native village in Bhavnagar following a quarrel with Shailesh. Shailesh and his father-in-law had returned home late in the evening to find the door locked. After continuous knocking, they broke open the door with the help of neighbours only to find Arpan dead.
Arpan was very distressed after his mother left. He repeatedly pleaded with his father to intervene and stop her.
Shailesh then went looking for his wife. Officials say Arpan had apparently stumbled upon his father's suicide note. He then added in the note that he agreed with his father's stance before ending his life.
