“Parvaiz had left home after an argument with his father, who wanted him to join a college while the son was interested in religious studies,” the newspaper said. “They said he booked himself a seat on a flight to Teheran on March 23. He was scheduled to return to Delhi on April 9 after exploring avenues for religious studies in Europe.”

The newspaper said that Parvaiz had sent a message to his family conveying he was facing some “problems”. This input led to a probe by police. The probe located him flying Ankara where he was arrested while he was traveling in a bus, the newspaper said, adding, he was deported quickly.
