As per SpotboyE, the statement in the video goes like this, "Namaskar, my name is Raju Sapte and I am an art director. I am not making this video in any intoxication. From the last few days, I have been harassed by Rakesh Maurya of the Labor Union. There are no complaints against me and I have cleared all payments of labors. Rakesh Maurya is provoking the labor people even though all the payments have been cleared. This has stuck with many of my projects."
He further says that he has five projects in his kitty but Rakesh Maurya has made it impossible for him to start any work. He said that he had to leave a project for the same reason. Raju Sapte, said as a mark of protest I am ending my life today. Vivek Mugalikar who is the senior police inspector at Wakad says they have recovered the clip and suicide note.
