Lakhimpur Kheri: Dilshad befriends Dalit girl, rapes and kills when she refuses to change religion and marry him

Apart from Dilshad's confession, the police have stated that they have the murder weapon, CCTV footage, bloodstained clothes and other evidence against the culprit.

Uttar Pradesh Police have arrested one Mohd Dilshad in connection with the brutal rape and murder of an 18-year-old Dalit girl in Lakhimpur Kheri, a day after the mutilated body of the girl was found dumped near a dried-up pond around 200 metres from her village. Lakhimpur Kheri SSP Satendar Kumar said the post-mortem report had confirmed rape. The accused has reportedly confessed to the crime.

“Apart from the statement of the accused, the conclusion is also based on scientific evidence such as fingerprints, bloodstained clothes and CCTV footage that has confirmed the crime. A knife has also been recovered based on the information given by him,” said the SSP.

According to ABP News journalist, the accused Mohd Dilshad, who worked at a tailor shop where the girl used to get her clothes stitched, first befriended the 18-year-old Dalit girl. After he learnt that the girl’s family is planning her wedding, Dilshad forced the girl to change her religion and marry him instead. When the girl refused, Dilshad stalked her, brutally raped and murdered her with a sharp weapon, then dumped her mutilated body and fled.

Lakhimpur Kheri rape and murder a case of ‘Love Jihad’

Responding to senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who took to Twitter to castigate Uttar Pradesh government for the incident, Shalabh Mani Tripathi, the media advisor to the CM of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath, shared the Lakhimpur Kheri Police press note which confirmed what exactly transpired. Calling it a case of ‘Love Jihad’, Tripathi questioned the Congress leader that now when she knows that it was an incident of ‘Love Jihad’, would she dare to speak a word this phenomenon that is dismissed by her party.

It is notable here that recently, Priyanka Gandhi had tweeted about the girl’s body being found in Lakhimpur Kheri and had raised questions about the law and order situation in the state.

Meanwhile, in the press release, the Lakhimpur Kheri police confirmed that the victim’s call record revealed that she and accused Dilshad were in regular touch with each other for the past few months. In fact, the day before the murder, the two had spoken to each other 13 times over calls.

Press note by Lakhimpur Kheri police

According to relatives of the Dalit girl, she left home on Monday to visit a neighbouring town to fill up a scholarship form. However, when she did not return the family informed the police. “I really don’t know what to say or whom to suspect. She left around 8.30 AM on Monday. We do not suspect anyone,” her uncle told the media.

Police claimed that Dilshad admitted that during a heated argument, he had attacked the girl, raped her, then slit her throat and dumped the body near a pond.
