Mystery surrounding the disappearance of Bollywood actress Laila Khan was resolved after the remains of six bodies were recovered from the grounds of a luxury Indian farmhouse. Laila Khan along with her mother Saleena Patel along with her four siblings had been missing since February 2011.
According to senior police officials of Mumbai police Saleena’s third husband Pervaiz Ahmed Tak confessed to the murder of all six members of the family. The main claimed that he killed the family in a fit of jealousy over his wife’s second husband, Asif Sheikh. Police officials further said that it was Tak himself who led police to the human remains, which were uncovered from a six foot deep pit at the farmhouse in Igatpuri.
The horrific incident of brutal multiple killings took place following a party that took place at the farmhouse on the night of February 8, 2011. After the party an argument is believed to have taken place between Tak and Laila’s mother, Saleena after she praised her second husband Asif. As the argument began to take a rather unexpected and dangerous turn Saleena reportedly went to the ground floor of the farmhouse where Laila and her siblings were sleeping. But Tak allegedly hit his wife with a blunt object, killing her.
A scuffle then broke out between Tak and Laila, her sisters and brother which ended with all of them getting killed by their stepfather. Even though known for her minor appearances in movies, Laila Khan was best known for her role in 2008 Bollywood film Wafa: A Deadly Love Story.
