Yaamyn was discovered around 0259hrs in the stairwell of his home, M. Spectula.
Yaamyn’s father Hussain Rasheed said that his son had sustained stab wounds to 14 spots on his chest and one each on his neck and head. He said the family did not wish to conduct an autopsy, as how he died was clear. He also reported that the CCTV cameras in the home had been diverted.
