HYDERABAD: In a chilling incident, a 24-year-old auto driver’s throat was slit by a person riding pillion on the former’s two-wheeler at Jahanuma in Falaknuma on Sunday. Falaknuma inspector R Devender said the victim, Abdul Shahrukh, an accused in a POCSO Act case registered last year, bled to death within a few minutes. Police are yet to establish the identity of the assailant.
The entire incident has been captured by a nearby closed circuit television (CCTV) camera in the lane. Shahrukh was travelling on the bike along with another person riding pillion in a lane at Jahanuma. Suddenly, the pillion rider pulled out a knife and slashed his throat.
Shahrukh stopped the bike and pushed it on the road before he started to flee. The accused, who fell down, immediately got up and tried to chase him. The victim walked up to 50 feet before he fell on the road and breathed his last. The accused, who followed the victim, escaped from the spot.
Based on an identity card and mobile phone of the victim, police identified him as Shahrukh, a resident of Mustafa Nagar. Later, police came to know that he was facing sexual abuse charge after he reportedly eloped with a 17-year-old girl last year. As the girl is a minor, based on the complaint lodged by her family, a case was registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offence (POCSO) Act. Police suspect the role of the girl’s family behind the murder.
The girl’s family, which resides in Mailardevpally, called the victim to their place. The murder took place when the accused and the victim were travelling at Jahanuma.
Police booked a case under Section 302 (Murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and started a manhunt to nab the assailant, suspected to be the girl’s father.
