It was the girl’s uncle Bashir Ahmed who showed the dead body of my son. How he knew, Parvez’s body is lying at a particular place. Ironically, police released both the girl and her influential uncle,” Shamsuddin said adding it was also established that his son had made the last call to the said girl.
