How to root Lenovo K10E70 (guide with photos)

Few days back one of my friend handed over me a Lenovo K10E70 which is a chinese phone with lots of bloatware pre installed on it. and there is no proper guide available for rooting this phone. But after 2 days of search found a thread on XDA, which explained how to root it, but still guide was unclear. So here in this post i will guide you step by step with the help of photos.
