Horrific Murder of Two Brothers in UP, Accused Encounter Mother’s Revelation: First Murdered after Borrowing 5000

In a distressing event that unfolded in Budaun, on Tuesday evening (March 19), two young cousins fell victim to a brutal assault, their throats slit with weapons. The deceased were aged 14 and 6 respectively. The incident incited an outcry of anger from the local community. Additionally, there were instances of vandalism reported involving bikes and shops.

Following the incident, the Mandi Samiti Police carried out an operation three hours later in the night and encountered one suspect, Sajid, while the other was still at large. Both suspects happen to be brothers.

According to Munni Devi, the grandmother of the deceased children, they had come to her neighbor’s house and were engaged in a conversation with her when she asked them to fetch some tea. In the meantime, they went upstairs where they were attacked. They had inflicted wounds on the hands of her other grandson with a weapon, which alerted us to the situation. However, the exact motive behind this incident is yet to be determined.

This picture is of accused Sajid. The police had an encounter with him.

After Demanding Money, They Killed the Children

The mother of the deceased children, Sangeeta, recounted, “Sajid and Javed had come to our house on a bike. Javed stayed outside with the bike while Sajid entered the house. 

He said, ‘Sister-in-law, I need to get my wife delivered at the hospital. I need ₹5000.’ I gave the money to Sajid.”

Afterwards, I asked them to have tea. I went to make tea. Sajid told me that I am very nervous. I’m going upstairs. When I went upstairs, Sajid had already killed both the children. The reason for the murder is still unknown. I have no dispute with these people.

Mother Sangeeta said- I have no dispute with those people, I don't know why they killed my children.

Salon Owned by Suspects Facing the Deceased’s Residence

Vinod Kumar, a contractor residing in Baba Colony, runs a salon nearby, where he lives with his wife Sangita and children. Sangita operates her own beauty parlour from home. At the time of the incident, Vinod was away for work. They have three children, among whom Ayush (14) and Annu, also known as Honey (6), were among the deceased.

It is reported that Sajid and Javed operate a salon opposite Vinod’s residence. There has been an ongoing dispute between Vinod’s family and these two individuals, although the exact reason for the dispute has not been clarified yet.

This is the accused's shop, which was vandalized and set on fire by the mob.

“I grabbed him and ran out, urging people to come. By then, the suspects had fled from the house. We don’t know why they attacked the children.”
