Mother of man burnt alive wants guilty punished


"I have seen the video and heard the cries of my helpless father while he was being killed", Rejina Khatun, Afrazul's daughter, told The Indian Express.

What is even more appalling is that the perpetrator, Shambunath Raigar, confessed to having committed this heinous crime and even filmed it.


The state police confirmed that they have arrested Regar and have registered a case of murder and tampering with evidence under sections 302 and 201 of the Indian Penal Code.

The killing of 48-year-old West Bengal migrant Mohammed Afrazul in Rajsamand on the 25th anniversary of Babri Masjid demolition is the latest hate crime against Muslims in Rajasthan, the statement said. The police also asked nearby people to identify the burnt person.

In a second video, the man is seen justifying the incident to "protect the honour of Hindus against Muslims". The incident took place in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district and the video has gone viral.

The half-burnt body of the victim has also been recovered by the police.
