“you (Parmish) used to challenge me a lot to come out and face him. See now I have caught you even though you tried your best to miss me. I told you to accept what I said but no you did not do that, so see we’ve met today. Meeting directly has costed you today. Now listen to the remaining part, now that we’ve started, I don’t know till where we’ll go. Don’t be in any doubt that I am no more, I have only earned brothers till today. You were saved by your prayers today but not next time. Now decide if you want to use your own brain or you want to follow what other say.”
The police has charged a case against the assailant but no arrest has been made so far.
