However, he sadly suffered a cardiac arrest in the train while he was on his way back home. Obaid also had the responsibility of Mustaaq’s treatment.
Reports narrate how Obaid could not meet Mustaaq in Bihar, his pain was great, he boarded the train to return to M’lore and had spoken to his kin for a long time on the mobile his grief was such that soon after he suffered a cardiac arrest and died on the train. Obaid is survived by four children, his death is misery to a grieved and suffering family circle.
Mushtaaq’s wife, expecting their fourth child the crisis faced by her husband left her in immense depression is unable to get up from bed. Their three school going children have had to remain at home because they were being ridiculed and heckled every where they went.
Even a section of the media accused them and unjustly sensationalised the news. Justice is due to them from law and society.
