A police investigation into the death of a young man in India revealed a horrifying detail: the man’s use of an epoxy adhesive to “seal his private parts to ensure protection during intercourse.”
The Times of India published a story Tuesday regarding “senior police officers probing the mysterious death of 25-year-old Salman Mirza of Ahmedabad.”
Complex, picking up the story, said the man checked into a hotel in Juhapura with his ex-fiancée on June 22. He was found unconscious in shrubs near an apartment complex by a friend named Firoz Shaikh the following day.
Shaikh helped take Mirza home, but when his condition worsened, he was transported to a hospital where he eventually died of multiple organ failure.
According to the police, both Mirza and his companion were drug addicts, and after taking drugs together, they decided to have sex and reportedly improvised protection.
“Since they did not have any protection, they decided to apply the adhesive on his private parts to ensure that she does not get pregnant.” Police said that the adhesive was something they mixed with whitener to snort as part of their drug-taking regimen.
Mirza’s family is reportedly accusing his ex-fiancée of applying the adhesive.
“We are waiting for the report on the deceased’s viscera sample that has been sent for forensic examination,” Deputy Police Commissioner Premsukh Delu said.
OpIndia added that Salman was reportedly the sole breadwinner for his family, including his elderly parents and two sisters.
