When one of his friends was asked about the drug overdose, his friend said,
Aditya was not into drugs. He was found unconscious in his bathroom by another friend, who took him to the nearby hospital along with the watchman. He probably died after hitting his head on the floor or maybe had a heart attack. The police have already started their investigation and we are all waiting for the post-mortem reports.
