Tuesday, 09 July 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

In a brutal triple murder in Ghazipur district, a man, his wife and their son were murdered by slitting their throats while they were sleeping in their house in Kusumhi Kala village under Nandganj police station of the district.

The murders came to light when the youngest son of the deceased family returned home after watching an orchestra programme organised in the village.

According to reports, Munshi Bind (45) of Khilwa Mauja in Kusumhikala under Nandganj police station area and his wife Devanti (40) were sleeping in a hut outside the house while the elder son Ramashish (20) was sleeping inside the house. They were murdered by slitting their throats by unknown assailants sometime late on Sunday night.

The entire family had gone to enjoy the performance of an orchestra organised in the village to celebrate some function on Sunday night. Around midnight, they all returned and went to sleep. The youngest son, Asheesh, however, left the house again to enjoy the orchestra. The incident came to light when Ashish returned home after watching the programme in the wee hours of Monday. He saw his parents lying dead in a pool of blood outside the house. When he ran inside the house to wake up his elder brother, he found blood all over him.

On seeing the bodies, Ashish started screaming and shouting and hearing the noise, people from nearby areas reached there. On receiving information, the police immediately reached the spot along with senior officers including Superintendent of Police Omveer Singh.

Omvir Singh said that prima facie it appeared to be a planned murder because all the deceased had been attacked on their necks.

Meanwhile, in another incident in Sambhal district reported late on Sunday night, two groups clashed with each other over a rivalry in village Bhikampur Jagir under the Rajpura police station.

Five people were seriously injured in the clash while a 50-year-old villager, Ramveer, died during treatment in the district hospital.

His family members allege that when Ramveer was injured, the police kept him in custody and when his condition worsened, he was admitted to the hospital.

His brother Bhoop Singh said that on Monday that the mundan ceremony on Ramveer’s five-year-old grandson Bobby was to be held at Anupshahr Ganga Ghat. He said that some local residents refused to attend it so on Sunday night, around 10 pm, Ramveer went to their houses to convince everyone to attend the function. Bhoop Singh said that some argument broke out between the two sides after which some villagers attacked Ramveer and brutally assaulted him and also opened fire. On getting information about the fight, other people also reached the spot.

Rameshwar, Dinesh, Varsh and Billu were injured in the incident. Baba Singh, Kalicharan, Harvansh from the other side were also injured.

They were taken to the police station but when Ramveer’s condition deteriorated, he was shifted to hospital where he died on Monday morning.

Further investigations are on in the matter.
