Police handed over to the body of Srivastava to Khans as he had no immediate family.

The Khans on Tuesday performed the ‘terhvi’ feast, held on the thirteenth day after the death.

Speaking to PTI on Thursday, Irfan Khan and Farid Khan said Srivastava was like a family member.

“He was like an elderly family member and we did what should be done for any elderly member of a family,” Irfan Khan said.

“Even at the time when we went about distributing cards for ‘terhvi’, people expressed surprise over it,” he said.

It was reported that around 1000 people from both the Hindu and Muslim communities attended the ‘terhvi’ feast.
