A resident of Peer Gaib locality under Mughalpura police station of Moradabad, Qureshi had arrived in his hometown only 10 days ago. Two days ago, he had participated in Mr Moradabad championship and was declared the first runner-up.

According to the police, he was a bit upset after losing the bodybuilding title and had an overdose of steroids before going to gym on Wednesday evening.

Circle Officer Rajesh Kumar said, "After completing his power lifting sessions at the gym, he came home and went to the bed after dinner. On Thursday morning, when he woke up, he had lost his mind due to the drug's side-effect. Within a few minutes, he ran out of his house and had shattered glasses of the cars parked there."

Station House Officer Gajendra Singh said Qureshi was named in a rape case in 2017. "He was arrested and sent to jail after one of his relatives alleged rape. He later got bail," Singh said.
