Man burnt alive in Rajasthan for 'love jihad', accused arrested

A man was brutally attacked and his body set ablaze in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district for allegedly committing "love jihad".

The police also asked people in the nearby areas to identify the person.The man in the video was identified by some as Mohammed Bhatta Sheikh.

In the beginning of the video, Shambhu Lal Regar, in a red shirt and white pants, is seen on the video with Afrazul, who quietly follows him to a spot.

Shambhulal has now been arrested by the Rajasthan Police, according to reports, and booked under IPC Section 302, among other sections, but Rajasthan home minister Gulab Chand Kataria calling the incident "shocking" is simply laughable.

Initially, Raigar made a video of his brutal act and it was uploaded on social media. Furthermore, the attacker can be seen saying in the video: "Jihadis, leave our country, else you will meet the same destiny".

Deputy Superintendent of Police, Pankaj Kumar Singh added, "We are trying to arrest the accused".

In a second video, the man is seen justifying the incident to "protect the honour of Hindus against Muslims".

Internet services in the Rajsamand district were suspended to stop circulation of the horrific video, fearing a communal clash. In the video, initially it can be seen that the perpetrator hits the man killed with an agricultural tool, then pours kerosene oil on his body and burns him alive. The equipment, the victim's bike, and his slippers were also found from the crime spot. The half-charred body of Afrazul was found at around 1 pm on Wednesday. The pamphlets that were later withdrawn, termed Muslims as "terrorists" who trap Hindu women, sell them or even kill them and had lessons on "how to save your daughters/sisters from Love jihad".
