70-Year-Old Woman Brutally Beaten By Her Son Forced To Take Back Her Complaint

When the migrant worker became silent, the accused - believed to be aged between 35 and 40 - set him on fire. The incident took place in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district and the video has gone viral. As is the case with earlier videos of lynching, for example of the dairy farmer Pehlu Khan, Shambhulal's video of the murder followed by his hate speech, justifying the act, too went "viral" on WhatsApp.

Expressing his concerns over the incident, Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria, said, "It is shocking how he killed the man and made a video of it". Shambhu Nath Raigar, the person in the video, was arrested this morning, SP Rajsamand Manoj Kumar told PTI.

The state government has alerted the Rajsamand district officials and the local police to ensure communal harmony in the area remain intact.

Snow and ice weather warning comes into force
Forecasters had earlier warned it will be "bitterly cold" for the rest of the week despite a mild day today. A status yellow snow-ice warning is in place for the entire country.

The Rajasthan Police in Indian arrested an unemployed man who in a series of video clips was purportedly seen hitting and stabbing a Muslim man, burning the body and warning "jihadis" to leave India or meet a similar fate. "The half-charred body was found near Rajsamand... around 1 pm on Wednesday and the deceased was identified as Mohammad Afrazul". In the video, there is also a long speech on "love Jihad" and patriotism. But Shambulal Regar, then attacks him repeatedly with a weapon, and screams for help are heard as the video gets increasingly hard to watch. In the video, Afrazul was seen crying for help even as Raigar attacks him with an axe and then burns him alive. The victim has been identified by some as Mohammed Bhatta Sheikh, the report added. Police said that he had lured the victim on the pretext of offering him some work.

The most famous case in recent times of the so-called "love jihad" is that of Hindu woman Akhila Ashokan from Kerala whose parents moved court to annul her marriage to her Muslim husband.
