A Budaun police official confirmed that Javed was produced before the Budaun chief judicial magistrate’s court and then sent to jail after the court gave nod to his judicial custody for 14 days.

The official said Javed pleaded innocence before police and claimed that his elder brother Mohd Sajid, 27, had committed the crime in a state of depression. Sajid, whose wife had suffered miscarriage twice, had tried to kill himself in the past, Javed reportedly told the police.

The official added Javed appeared before the police at the Satellite police outpost in Bareilly late on Wednesday night, after which he was arrested and brought to Budaun for interrogation.

“We are cross-checking the facts and will recreate the sequence of crime with the help of Javed. The police may also go for narco test, if required, to find out the truth,” Alok Priyadarshi, Budaun superintendent of police (SP), had earlier said.

On Tuesday evening, Javed’s brother Mohd Sajid allegedly brutally attacked minor brothers Aayush, 14, and Aahan, 6, at their house on the pretext of demanding 5,000 from their mother for the treatment of his pregnant wife Sana. Hours later, Sajid was gunned down in an encounter with the police.

Doctors who performed the autopsy on the bodies of the two children confirmed that their throats were slit and that they were stabbed multiple times.
