Shareef Khan, the father of the deceased, said that his son had left the house at 12.30 am in his auto with '2 lakh cash in a bag.
According to Baaniya, it is unclear what happened between the time he left his friend's house and when his body was found. No suicide note has been recovered so far, the police said. He also told HT that it was unclear why he left the bag with cash at his friend's house.
"We have found a country made pistol in the right hand of the deceased".
Moreover, why did Rizwan visit the female friend's house when she is now in Bhopal? Upon inquiry, the deceased was identified as Rizwan Khan, a resident of Tihar village. When he did not return till late evening, we dialled his two phone numbers. According to the police, the auto was found near the residence of one of his friends in south Delhi. "On Tuesday when we visited the house we got the bag which contained around Rs 2 lakh rupees", said Khan.
Nawab found Khan sitting on the driver's seat in the unlocked vehicle with a bullet wound on his temple.
Later, he tried an alternate number to reach the player, but a girl answered the phone and did not tell him her address, the police said.
His father Sharif Khan said a cousin sister of Rizwan's friend and her father told them on phone that Rizwan have handed over his mobile phone and a bag with Rs 2 lakh at their residence on Monday afternoon and drove off in his vehicle. The girl's father, too, called around 7.15am and told us to collect the bag. I went there with my brother, Nawab.
According to police, the incident came to light after a PCR call was received at 10.20 am regarding a body being found inside a vehicle in GI Block of Saojini Nagar. "As I was inside their house, Nawab noticed Rizwan's auto parked nearby", said Rizwan's father Shareef Khan. Rizwan's father Sharif Khan said, "If they had kept us in the loop, my son would be alive today". "For now, we don't know what happened, but it appears he was angry after not finding her at the house", said a police officer who did not wish to be named.
