When the migrant worker became silent, the accused - believed to be aged between 35 and 40 - set him on fire. The video of the gruesome incident went viral on social media.

Police found a motorcycle, scooty, axe, bottle of petrol and a half-burnt Aadhaar card on the spot. As per the report by The Indian Express, the police had received information about a half-charred body of a man being found, who was later identified as Afrazul Khan, from Malda in Wst Bengal.

Though police are yet to confirm the motive of the murder, the "love jihad" claim surfaced after Regar posted a video on social media justifying his action.
