“Today his body was recovered from a drain,” Superintendent of Police (City) Dinesh Tripathi said.

He said Ali’s family has so far not raised suspicion over his death. The body has been sent for a post-mortem examination.

Tripathi said Ali’s daughter was killed nearly two months ago when she was going to her coaching classes.

Two people accused in the case are in jail, he said.

An investigation is underway to ascertain the circumstances leading to Ali’s death.
