Karan Tiwari was a club-level Mumbai cricketer. He had earlier bowled in the nets to a few IPL teams at the Wankhede Stadium. He was looking to get into a state-level team.

However, according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) rules, a cricketer is eligible to get selected in the IPL auction only if he has represented his state at any age group.

The Mid-Day reported that Tiwari had informed his friend of his decision to commit suicide after which the latter called Tiwari’s sister. She later informed her mother but by then it was too late. Tiwari was declared dead before being rushed to a nearby hospital.
