Father: Yaseen was 'a beautiful little boy'

My memories of my son are that he was a beautiful little boy, a very happy boy who was decent and polite. It is hard for me now to describe my loving feelings for my son.

He was loved by all who had known him due to his beautiful nature and his high academic level.

I would like to thank all my family, friends for the endless support through these difficult times and I would like to thank all the people who sent messages of condolences.
