The saw is also cut in two in the middle of the chest.
The pieces are then packed in separate polythene bags. The blood on the floor is removed tactically. There were no blood stains. Investigators speculated that Fahim's body might have been taken away in a suitcase after he was killed; So that Fahim goes a long way in unraveling the mystery of the missing.

Earlier on Monday afternoon, Fahim returned to his apartment on the seventh floor of the 10-storey building. After trying all night and until noon on Tuesday (July 14), Fahim was not found on the phone and his cousin rushed to the building.

A surveillance camera in the elevator also found some footage of Fahim's movements. He was last seen inside the elevator on Monday. A man in a suit, gloves, hat and mask was seen following him at the time.
