FIR Lodged Against Journalist For Sharing A Humourous Video Of PM Modi

Shambhu Nath Raigar, the person in the video, was arrested this morning, SP Rajsamand Manoj Kumar told PTI.

Rajsamand: A sensational case has come to the fore from Rajasthan's Rajsamand where a man was burnt alive allegedly for committing "love jihad".

The incident took place just 700 meters from the district collectorate in Rajsamand.

In one of the clips, Regar, dressed in a red shirt, a pair of white pants and white shoes, attacks the man with an iron rod and stabs the man when he falls to the ground. The accused then shot a video of himself to talk about Love Jihad and patriotism.

Home minister Gulabchand Kataria condemned the incident and said that the case has been handed over to SIT for further investigations.

According to police, the half-charred body was found near Rajsamand at around 1 pm on Wednesday and the deceased was identified as Mohammad Afrazul. In a video which is circulating on social media since Tuesday, Raigar can also be seen saying that those who indulge in "love jihad" will face the same fate.

Kenya government threatens opposition with 'treason' charge
Prof Muigai said the government would not stop at anything to prevent the breach of the rule of law and the constitution. Kenya's Attorney General Githu Muigai speaks during a press conference in Nairobi, Kenya September 22, 2017.

Police identified the body as that of 50-year-old Afrazul, a labourer from West Bengal who worked in the area.

In the video, Raigar is seen striking Afrazul with an axe, dousing him with petrol and setting him ablaze before fleeing the scene. A video showing him burning the man alive had surfaced after which senior police officials from the district had been camping there keeping tight vigil on the law and order situation. He said he killed Afrazul to save a woman from "love jihad". The video has gone viral.

Immediately, the Forensic Scientific Lab (FSL) team and dog squad was summoned. When media platforms, commentators, political analysts, editors, members of the Opposition start using the phrase without drawing attention to its utter fakeness, to the manufactured nature of the narrative, then the hate crime committed in the name of action against "love jihad" finds its own sickened justification mirrored everywhere.

The box-office hasn't been kind to Khan over the past few years - his last release, Chef , didn't manage to rake in the moolah. The film seems to be all about sex, drugs and action laced with some light humour reminding you of Delhi Belly .
