The CCTV visuals recovered from a nearby shop in the street, where Faisal’s mutilated body was found, helped the police in the investigation. A car and the two bikes were seen passing through the area close to the time of the murder. The police have identified one of the vehicles.
Faisal’s mother Meenakshi’s statement pointed the needle of a suspicion at Sangh Parivar organisations and their involvement in the murder which was reportedly in retaliation for Faisal’s and his family’s recent conversion into Islam. Meenakshi had alleged that her son-in-law, an RSS worker, had helped the killers and have overtly passed information on Faisal’s movements prior to the murder.
Meenakshi had also said that her son’s conversion was on his own volition and also said that she had no misgivings against his decision. “Now we have realised that so many of the recent suspicious moves of my son-in-law had connection with the murder. He had raised the threats against Faisal several times. But we never expected such a turn of events,” she said.
