Toku Moro was a civil engineer, working over a Japanese project of building a National Highway stretching from tribal areas of District Dera Ghazi Khan to Balochistan.

According to a note left by the engineer, he committed suicide becuase of strife with his wife. It read: "I love my wife very much. But she does not want 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."
