Love Jihad in Rajasthan: Mamata Banerjee calls it 'inhuman'
Kolkata : Reacting sharply to the brutal murder of a Muslim labourer in Rajasthan, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee posted a question on Twitter: “How can people be so inhuman. Sad.”
We strongly condemn the heinous killing of a labourer from Bengal in Rajasthan. How can people be so inhuman. Sad— Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) December 7, 2017
The victim, identified as Afrazul Khan (47), was first brutally killed and then burnt alive over an alleged affair. The victim's family has raised demands of the death penalty for the accused.
"We want those who killed my husband so brutally and showed it to the world be hanged. I want Insaaf (justice). He was only killed because he was a Muslim. Yesterday, at around 3 pm, we received a call from Rajasthan Police and were told that my husband has been murdered," said Gul Bahar Bibi, speaking to The Indian Express over the phone.
Rajasthan Police has arrested the main accused Shambhulal Regar and his 14-year-old nephew who recorded the whole incident on his mobile phone.
The half-burnt body of the victim has also been recovered by the police.
