Mohammed Sheikh burnt alive over alleged 'love jihad', video goes viral

But Shambulal Regar, then attacks him repeatedly with a weapon, and screams for help are heard as the video gets increasingly hard to watch.

Rajsamand (Rajasthan): In a sensational incident, a Muslim man was burnt to death in an alleged case of "Love Jihad" here. According to News18, the victim was a Muslim labourer identified as Mohammed Afrazul who was working in the area as a contract labourer.

The victim Mohammed Afrazul's family is reportedly in disbelief, saying, "Those who killed him like an animal and showed his pictures to the world should be hanged". "Raigar is seen threatening eyewitnesses over love jihad", a police official said.

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.

The tool used for murder, the victim's motorbike and his slippers were found in the crime scene. "Accused has been arrested and a special investigation team (SIT) has been set up for investigation in the case", Kataria told news agency ANI.

On 19 November, a controversial booklet and a pamphlet warning Hindu girls of "love jihad" was allegedly distributed at a stall in a Hindu spiritual and service fair in Jaipur, prompting the police to order an inquiry.
