In a horrific incident, a man axed a Muslim labourer from West Bengal and then burnt him alive, allegedly for committing ‘love jihad’ in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand district. The accused, Shambhu Lal Rega, had shot a video of the act and uploaded it to social media with a message that anyone involved in love-jihad will meet a similar fate.

In the video, accused was seen beating the 48-year-old Mohammed Afrazul, who hailed from Malda and later setting him on fire.

Additional Director-General of Police, crime, Pankaj Kumar Singh was quoted as saying by The Indian Express:

“During preliminary investigations, we have come to know that one of the videos in which Regar makes the inflammatory statements was shot in a local temple a little while after he murdered Afrazul.”

The accused has been arrested and a special investigation team (SIT) has been set up for investigation in the case. The accused claims that he committed the act in a bid to save a girl from “love jihad”.
