Hailing from Etawah in Uttar Pradesh, Saxena had migrated to Delhi to prepare for the engineering entrance exam alongside his Class-12 studies. However, upon receiving his results on Monday, which indicated failure in two subjects, he purportedly fell into a state of despair, as per the statements provided by fellow residents of the paying-guest accommodation.

Saxena's family has been informed of the tragic incident, and his body has been transferred to a mortuary for post-mortem examination.
