"My son came to me and told me that he was fighting for the love of a woman with a Police officer who i later came to know after he showed him to me. I don't even think that he was shot because he resisted. The incidents that happened prior to his death are not normal ", he said.
According to the reports given by the man, he called upon the IPOA to investigate the police officer who shot his son stating that something is not adding up.
