Sajid was gunned down by the police hours after the alleged murder while trying to flee. His brother Javed, also allegedly involved in the crime, fled after the incident, according to the police.

According to the first information report, Sajid entered the house on the false pretext of seeking 5,000 to treat his pregnant wife.

“The accused entered the house around 7:30pm and went to the terrace where the children were playing. He then attacked the two children and killed them”, SSP Priyadarshi had earlier said.
