“On Tuesday, Ankit came back home but left around 5 pm to buy groceries. When he did not return, we started looking for him at different police stations and hospitals. We couldn’t find him and filed a missing report. Later, a neighbour told me that he saw Ankit with a friend. We went to his place and asked about Ankit. He told us that there were rumours that a man was beaten to death near Chand Bagh bridge and his body was dumped in a drain," Ankit's father said.

The police was informed and the local divers were deployed to find the body. The divers pulled out a body that was identified by Ankit's family. His father said that there were multiple stab wounds on his son's face, head, back and chest.
