Nadeem had recently connected with Faran through the 'Grindr' app and invited him over around 4 pm on the mentioned date. After a brief conversation, Faran excused himself to the washroom. Shortly thereafter, several unknown individuals knocked on Nadeem's door, prompting his immediate apprehension. He hurriedly secured the washroom door as a precautionary measure. The strangers outside threatened to summon the police unless Nadeem opened the door.
