Mohammad Shareef, popularly known as Shareef Chacha, was a bicycle mechanic. His eldest son Raees was murdered in 1992 on way to Sultanpur, a neighbouring district of Ayodhya (then Faizabad). With his unclaimed body lying on the road, it was devoured by stray animals.
After this incident, Shareef Chacha started performing the last rites of the unidentified bodies. He used to visit police stations, hospitals, railway stations and mortuary in search of unclaimed bodies. The bodies are handed over to him by police only after nobody claims it for 72 hours. He gave honour in death to over 25,000 people.
