A Bihar-based woman was brutally murdered in broad daylight by moneylenders who chopped off her ears, hands and breasts. The woman had borrowed a sum of money from the accused for her daughter’s wedding. However, as she failed to repay the money, the lenders attacked her in broad daylight. The incident was reported from Bihar’s Bhagalpur and occurred earlier on Saturday last week.

The victim in the matter was identified as Neelam while the accused were identified as Shakeel Miyan and Juddin Mian. The matter was initially suspected to be having a communal angle. However, further investigation in the matter led the police to disprove all such theories. However, to be on the safe side, the cops ended up deploying some forces to make sure any untoward incident does not transpire.

After being attacked in broad daylight, the woman was rushed to the local hospital. She was referred to Jawaharlal Nehru Medical Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.

According to reports, earlier on Saturday, the woman was at a public place when Shakeel and Juddin attacked her. She sustained multiple stab wounds on her back and head. Shockingly enough, eyewitnesses who didn’t come to the woman’s aide, were able to record her naming the attackers on their phones. Following the incident, both Shakeel and Juddin were arrested.

The Facts of the Matter

There has been a significant increase in crimes where money lenders provide quick credit at exorbitant interest rates, and commit heinous actions to enforce repayment. From blackmailing to sharing morphed pictures on social media, to physical harassment, lenders employ several dubious methods.

In one such incident, a woman in Bihar brutally murdered by money lenders. The attackers reportedly chopped off the woman’s limbs, ears and breasts. What makes the incident all the more gruesome, is the fact that everything transpired in broad daylight.
