Hello @kartik,

The method is:

res.sendStatus(404);

Express will send a very basic 404 response with "Not Found" text:

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
X-Powered-By: Express
Vary: Origin
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 9
ETag: W/"9-nR6tc+Z4+i9RpwqTOwvwFw"
Date: Fri, 23 Oct 2015 20:08:19 GMT
Connection: keep-alive

Hope it helps!!!

Thank You!!
