Addressing the uncertainties surrounding his condition, Prathap shared, “I was feeling a bit down for personal reasons, which affected my appetite.

Supporting Prathap's clarification, doctors from Sanjeevini Hospital, where he was treated, affirmed that his condition was not indicative of a suicide attempt.
