“Several witnesses said Mirza, 25, along with his former fiancee, both of whom were on drugs, had gone to a hotel in Juhapura. There, they applied an epoxy adhesive on his private parts as they were not carrying any protection,” a senior Ahmedabad city police officer said.
“We checked CCTV footage and found Mirza and his girlfriend entering the hotel. He was found unconscious the next day,” the officer said.
A police officer said the duo had first indulged in drugs before having sex. “Since they did not have any protection, they decided to apply an adhesive on his private parts. They were carrying the adhesive, as they occasionally used it with whitener to inhale the mixture for a kick,” the officer said.
Mirza was lying unconscious in the shrubs near Amber Tower the next day, when an acquaintance, Firoz Shaikh, found him and took him home, the officer said.
Mirza’s condition deteriorated and he was taken to Sola Civil Hospital where he died.
According to Mirza’s family, his friends have claimed that he had taken some drug which had affected his health.
Mirza was the only earning member of his family which comprised his elderly parents and two sisters.
