What Happened In UP's Budaun

A local barber hacked two boys to death and critically hurt a third in an axe attack on Tuesday in Baba Colony of Uttar Pradesh's Budaun, an officer said, adding that the accused was gunned down in an encounter hours later.

According to the police, the accused - Sajid - had recently opened a barber shop in the locality. He entered a house and attacked three minor brothers -- Ayush, Ahaan alias Honey, and Yuvraj, with an axe.

Ayush and Ahaan died in the attack, while Yuvraj was rushed to a hospital with grievous wounds, he said.

The father of the deceased children alleged that the accused had come to his house to collect money and cited his wife's pregnancy, adding that he then went on to carry out the murder.

The deceased children's father said he had no enmity with the accused and that he has no clue his kids have been killed.

The deceased children's father named Javed, brother of Sajid, as the main accused in his complaint based on which a First Information Report (FIR) was registered. Sajid was killed in the encounter with the police after the incident.

Mother of the victims said Sajid did not visit their house regularly, adding that it was her kids who used to visit his shop for haircuts.

"No, he [accused Sajid] didn't use to come to our house regularly. Our children visited his shop for hair cutting, that's all," said victims' mother Sangeeta.

Victims' father Vinod Kumar said: "He [Sajid] had asked for a loan of Rs 5,000 from us, he had come to take the money. I believe they were associated with some organisation, which is behind this incident."

"Javed [Sajid's brother] should be arrested as soon as possible as he can reveal the real motive. We demand the government to order a detailed probe," Vinod Kumar had said.
