Days after the heinous Shradha Walker case, a man in Uttar Pradesh chopped his ex-girlfriend in six pieces with his family’s help, and was later shot dead in an encounter. The incident was reported from Paschimi village in Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh and the accused was identified as Prince Yadav. The victim in the matter has been identified as 22-year-old Aradhna Prajapati. The horrific killing occurred earlier on November 10.

The accused’s family and relatives including maternal uncles, aunts, cousin brothers and sisters, have been reported to be co-accused in the matter, helping the accused get shelter after he committed the crime. When Aradhna’s family decided a groom for her and married her to another boy earlier in February, the accused harbored rage for her, which later transpired in him killing the girl.

The accused gave a confession earlier on November 19, and was taken to a pond, 6 km away from the native village where he had dumped the victim’s head. While the police were searching for further evidence in the area, the accused tried to escape by opening fire using a country made pistol that he recovered at the spot.

In defence, the cops fired and the accused suffered bullet injuries, and later succumbed to the same.
