MC Kode’s post read, “Currently standing at an isolated bridge overlooking the Yamuna river where I could see the waves answering my distress call while giving me much needed perspective. I do not blame anyone for anything but myself. A relief from my own existence is gonna serve as a punishment that the entire country wanted.”
His mother, Deepa Tiwari, filed a complaint in South Delhi’s Mehrauli police station on June 4 and a case of kidnapping was registered the next day.
MC Kode has been a popular name among the rappers and has been hosting, participating, and judging rap battles across many states, including Mumbai, Gujarat, Guwahati, Jaipur, Uttar Pradesh & Haryana.
