Assistant Commissioner of Police K P Raghuvanshi told mediapersons today, ''We made a clay model of the body and have released two photographs, one with teeth and another without it. We appeal people to come forward and provide information about the victim.'' Further, talking about the recent encounter, he said Mohammed Ali, who died in an encounter had come to Mumbai about three-four days back and was supposed to cause disturbunce during the Ganesh festivali here.

Three maps recovered from Ali and his associates Mohammed Riyaz, who was nabbed by the ATS (Anti-terrorist Squad), Dore red marking over Bhabha Automic Research Centre (BARC), ATS office at Byculla, Siddhivinayak temple, Bandra and Western Railway. ''It seem they came to target these places,'' Mr Raghuvanshi said.
