Uttar Pradesh: One Nasir Qureshi hacks wife to death with an axe and threatens to set village on fire, gets killed by angry villagers

After, coming out of his in-law's house, Quereshi allegedly threatened to set the whole village on fire by blowing up the gas cylinder in his in-law's house, said the village pradhan to some reporters.

Nasir Qureshi hailing from Chhattisgarh was killed by a group of villagers in Uttar Pradesh’s Fatehpur district after he hacked his wife to death and thereafter threatened to set the whole village on fire by blowing up the gas cylinder.

According to a report by The Hindu, in what transpired on October 30, Nasir Qureshi who had gone to his in-law’s house in Semor village under the Ghazipur police station got into an argument with his wife. The argument ultimately culminated in him hacking her mercilessly to death with an axe. The wife’s sister and mother who rushed to her rescue were also injured in the ensuing scuffle.

After, coming out of his in-law’s house, Quereshi allegedly threatened to set the whole village on fire by blowing up the gas cylinder in his in-law’s house, said the village pradhan to some reporters. “He suddenly ran out with an axe. The public dispersed. After that, I don’t know what happened. I was on the roof,” he said.

The entire sequence angered the villagers who then attacked Qureshi, leading to his death.

A video, purportedly of the angry villagers beating him up was widely shared on social media. The footage shows a man lying on the ground, almost motionless, as some men take turns to rain lathi blows on him.

The Circle Officer (CO) Jafarganj, Sripal Yadav said that the video, which had not surfaced on the day of the incidence is now being investigated and a case had been registered against unidentified persons on a complaint from the brother of the deceased, who had hacked his wife to death with an axe.

Three persons have been arrested so far based on the video footage, said Fatehpur SP Prashant Verma adding that the search was on for others and strict action would be taken against those involved.
