Chilling Murder In Rajasthan On Video. Man Hacks Labourer, Burns Him

NDTV News Incident 10 months ago

The killer has been identified as Shambhu Lal and the man he murdered is believed to be Afrazul.

In a horrific video that is in circulation, a man in Rajasthan hacks another man to death and burns the body while keeping up an inflammatory communal rant warning against "love jihad", the term used by rightwing groups to label relationships between Muslim men and Hindu women.

Internet has been suspended in Rajsamand to stop the circulation of the video, which has gone viral. State Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria says the accused will be arrested soon.

The police believe a half-burnt body they found this morning near a road in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district could belong to the man being killed in the phone video. 

The killer has been identified as Shambhu Lal and the man he murdered is believed to be Afrazul, a daily wage labourer from Malda in West Bengal.  

Shambhu Lal, a red shirt and white trousers, is seen on the video with Afrazul, who quietly follows him to a spot. The police say the victim may have been led there on the pretext of work.

Shambhu Lal then attacks him repeatedly with a weapon, and screams for help are heard as the video gets increasingly difficult to watch.

When the victim falls silent, Shambhu Lal begins talks about committing the murder to save a woman from "love jihad".

The police believe a third person could have been involved; he could have been the one to shoot the mobile video.

The state administration is watching out for any violence or trouble.

"It is shocking how he killed the man and made a video of it. The accused has been arrested and a special investigation team (SIT) has been set up...Any person will be disturbed by the video," Home Minister Kataria said.

Senior police officers have been sent to Rajsamand to prevent any flare-up.
