Could have been minority Hazara, non Punjabi who ended his life.
Or maybe just a depressed and disturbed guy.
Luckily he didn't go to some village and started killing people.
RIP, probably couldn't work for someone who bombed their own citizens.
un islamic act of highest order.

Four people were killed on Monday in an indiscriminate firing by Army jawan in Punjab.
SANGRUR: A 26-year-old soldier has killed four persons including three of a family from black range and injured four others with double barrel gun in broad daylight in Hassanpur village near Dhuri town of Sangrur district of Punjab on Tuesday.
The accused Jagdeep Singh, who was on leave for the past over 20 days and who had taken position at rooftop after executing killings, was also killed during exchange of fire with police.
He was killed after cops requested through the public announcement system, a Gurudwara loudspeaker, and even calls on his personal mobile phone failed to persuade him to surrender.
Jagdeep was deputed with Rashtriya Rifles in Jammu and Kashmir. Police said the domestic dispute appeared to be the reason behind the incident.
The soldier went on killing spree some minutes past Tuesday noon, when he used his newly purchased personal double barrel gun and targeted his brother's 24-year-old wife Gurpreet Kaur. He chased her for half-a-kilometre in village street before killing her.
"After killing Gurpreet, he killed his uncle's wife Labh Kaur, and her 16-year-old grandson Harmandeep Singh. He also fired shots at his cousin brother Harjinder Singh (Harman's father) who managed to escape the spot", said Balkar Singh, DIG, Patiala police range.
Jagdeep then rushed towards his neighbours and opened fire at one Tarsem Singh of Ranike village, who was passing through the street, leaving him injured.
He then killed his neighbour Karnail Kaur, who was in her late 50s and injured her son Navinder Singh. Returning from Karnail Kaur's home, he also injured another village resident Gurmeet Kaur.
"Police reached the spot at quarter past 1 pm. He was firing at police after short intervals. We used public announcement system, gurudwara loudspeaker and even called him on his personal mobile phone to persuade him to surrender. But our and-and-half hour long efforts remained failed to persuade him. At last, police took permission from Sangrur deputy commissioner, who was also present at the spot, to enter into the house around 3 in the evening. He was killed during exchange of fire", said Sangrur SP (Detective) Jaskiranjit Singh Teja, who led the police team to the room where the soldier was hiding.
Sangrur SSP PS Thind, however, said that only post-mortem will revealed whether he died due to police firing or he killed self DIG Balkar Singh said the preliminary investigation revealed that the family had sold part of its land to Jagdeep's uncle (grandfather of 16-year-old victim Harmandeep Singh) when Jagdeep's elder brother (husband of victim Gurpreet Kaur) Gurdeep Singh had migrated to United States around two years ago.
"The family had spent around Rs 20-25 lakh to send Gurdeep to US and sold land, which appears to have led to dispute among Jagdeep's family members. Since the family had sold land to Jagdeep's uncle, he might have had grudges against him also", said the DIG.
Meanwhile, all the four injured persons were referred to Patiala's Rajindra Hospital.
