Madhu, one of the rescuers told TNM that they questioned the man but since he was not answering anything, they brought him back to gym and gave him water and fed him and sent him away.

"But he came back," he continued. "So again we sat down and tried to talk to him. That's when we took the second video," he said and added that they dropped him off later at Rajendranagar police station.

In the second video, he claimed to jump because he read a news that said whoever completed it "will get a Scorpio car as gift," claiming it was announced by PM Modi.
