The letter, translated from Japanese language, states that the reason of attempting suicide was the strife with his wife. It read: "I love my wife very much. But she does not wants to live with me and wants to end our marriage. I am very sad. Due to this reason I am ending my life. I have no reason to live anymore."

SHO stated that the couple had married two years ago and had been staying in the hotel since last two months. Adding that more than 20 Japanese and Chinese Nationals had been also living in the same hotel due to the ongoing project.
