According to police, Syed's family resides at Ibrahimpur village of Parigi mandal. Syed's sister's family resides at Alur village of Chevella mandal. Two days ago, the family came to Ibrahimpur. Meanwhile, Syed had received a subsidy from the Central Government as a part of building a toilet for an individual rural Indian household.
