Naik, who had studied till class 12, had taken a job at a pizza centre in Infinity Mall, Malad West, just three days ago. However, he did not like the job, said the police.

On Monday, Naik had an evening shift and he left his house around 3pm, but did not go to work. Subsequently, his parents received a call from the pizza outlet inquiring about him. His father then contacted him and found out that he was at Dahanukar Metro station and refused to go to work. The father went to the station and brought him home.
