Anuj Bidve's father found out about murder on Facebook

The father of Anuj Bidve, who was murdered in Salford on Boxing Day, has told Radio 5 live that he found out about his son's death on Facebook.

Anuj Bidve, 23, who was shot dead at close range on Oldsall Lane, was studying in Lancaster but was in Greater Manchester for the festive season.

Subhash Bidve said his main concerns were how long the authorities were taking to release his son's body and what implications the murder, thought by police to be a hate crime, would have on other Indian students hoping to study at universities in the UK.
