“Khan was spotted lying outside his home by a neighbour. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead,” said a police officer.
The victim’s family told police that Khan went outside his home after receiving a call on his mobile.
Police said they were looking for a youth, whose name was withheld, for killing Khan.
