Man burnt to death to 'save girl from love jihad' in Rajasthan

Horrific video shows man warning 'jihadists' as he hacks Muslim labourer and burns his body

I don't know the reason behind his murder. A motorcycle and a scooty can also be seen in the video.

The internet has been suspended in Rajsamand, Rajasthan to stop the circulation of the video, which has gone viral.

The police found the body and identified the victim as Mohammed Afrazul, 48. Police are also yet to ascertain if the victim was known to the accused killer. His wife Gul Bahar Bibi told Indian Express: "We want those who killed my husband so brutally and showed it to the world be hanged". The pamphlets that were later withdrawn, termed Muslims as "terrorists" who trap Hindu women, sell them or even kill them and had lessons on "how to save your daughters/sisters from Love jihad". His family members claimed that he had been working in Rajasthan for the past 12 years as an unskilled labourer and that he would visit home every two months.

She said: "We even spoke to him on Tuesday". He used to call us everyday.

On 19 November, a controversial booklet and a pamphlet warning Hindu girls of "love jihad" were allegedly distributed at a stall in an Hindu spiritual and service fair in Jaipur, prompting the police to order an inquiry. The ranting man, in the video, viciously beats up the victim before proceeding to set his body on fire.

"Jihadists, leave our country or you will meet the same fate", he later says in the video. Strict action will be taken against him (the perpetrator) once caught.

Kumar said they were close to identifying the person who shot the videos that were shared after the body was found.

Not just that, the perpetrator of the heinous crime made a video of the act which was later put on the social media. "Accused has been arrested and an SIT has been set up for investigation in the case", state Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said.
