Officer Azmat Khan said that the father, Aurangzeb Akbar, had given the police written assurance that he wouldn't harm his son, when returning him home.
Police say the transgender Aftab Aurangzeb, 19, also known as Maya, had been staying with friends in Peshawar, the provincial capital.
Azmat Khan said Maya's friends were worried that the family would harm the son, so they involved the police when Maya was brought home, asking for written assurance.
The father assured the police, as well as Maya, that no harm would come to her.
However, she was killed in a firing incident only hours after leaving the police station.
Maya's bullet riddled body was found on Saturday night at a river bank in his home town of Nowshera.
After initial investigation into the incident, local police now believe that her father, who was upset at her for choosing to live as a transgender, was behind the crime.
