Before killing the child, he urinated into the mouth of the toddler when he started crying for milk. Muhammad and the child’s mother were consuming alcohol when this incident took place.
Prabisha was married to Cheenu, a fisherman hailing from Irayummanthara. The couple have two children. After Cheenu got wind of their illicit relations, he took it up with his wife. After a few days Prabisha eloped with Muhammad carrying one-year-old Aristo Bulen.
