But two days later, it was locked when he wanted to go to the room. It was said it would not open. His son was threatened with death if he resisted. The matter also went to the panchayat. But they did not listen to the panchayat. He had lodged an FIR. Due to the same room here, the son and family lived in it. The cleric slept in the mosque itself. He was stabbed to death early in the morning.”
