Ashish also took to social media to write, “My big brother, my lighthouse, my happy quotient, my pampering person, is gone. My brother who supported me fiercely like my sister Monica whom I also lost, left. But yet, it is filled with positivity and gratitude that is very strong in me. He taught me well. To survive any storm. And I will do the same today. For him. I love you forever, my Rajiee. Until then my brother. Until we meet again.
