I saw the CCTV footage that shows four people including two women killed him. He hung up the phone stating he will call back in half an hour but I did not get any call from him. He was not answering to my repeated calls, and I grew suspicious on that day. They killed my husband brutally.”

Khaja Mohiuddin, father of the victim said “I came to know that he had some financial dispute with a partner. He was killed on Saturday night. After losing his job, he had opened a grocery showroom. Now the dead body is in hospital. I request the government to provide a visa for us to go there.”

Meanwhile, the Georgia police informed that the investigation is going on, a few people were taken into custody. As per the initial report, two Indians, and one US citizen are suspected to be involved in the crime. Arif’s wife Fatima has appealed to the Minister for External Affairs S.
