He was then brought to Shaibin’s house in Nilambur and tortured for a year. They chopped him into pieces when he died of continuous physical attack and dumped the parts in the Chaliyar river.

The incident came to light when his friends looted Shaibin after he failed to keep up the offer of money as compensation for participating in the crime. Shaibin then went to the police against the theft. His friends told police that they fear for their lives and Shaibin had forced them to murder a man (Sherif).
