Kumar prayed to the almighty to give strength to his family members to bear the loss of their loved one, an Information and Public Relations Department release said.

Pandey's body was found on Thursday on the railway tracks about one km from Ghaziabad railway station, the police said. A purported suicide note was also recovered from the spot.

In the suicide note, Pandey, a 2012-batch IAS officer, had written that he was fed up with his life and had lost his "belief on human existence," the police said.
