A Rajasthan man named Shambhulal Regar, aged 36 since his last hatred towards a particular religion made him conduct a heinous hate crime and he is in jail since december. He hacking a Muslim labourer to death in Rajsamand and burning his body, all on camera. Extremely disturbing video clips filmed by his 15-year-old nephew were widely circulated before the police arrested him.
Subsequently, his action is reiterated by two new videos in circulation his admonition against “jihadis” inside what appears to have been recorded inside the Jodhpur Central Jail and circulated. He wearing a hoodie, speaks into a cellphone reads out from a long, hate-filled statement asking Hindus to unite against Jihadis. In one of the videos, he alleges a threat to his life. Looking after this situation, the State Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria has ordered an investigation into how Regar accessed a phone inside the high security prison.
He depicts no regret and says to media that, “I couldn’t bear threats to Hindu women. I have ruined my life and I don’t regret it. But I am sad about the fact that the law and the media showed illicit relationship with her and me,” Media reports, including by NDTV, exposed how a failed relationship with a minor could have triggered Regar’s chilling crime.
Regar was arrested after the gut-wrenching video of him killing a man with a pickaxe and burning his body went viral in December. His victim, Mohammad Afrazul, was a 45-year-old daily wager from West Bengal. In the video, Regar ranted against “love jihad”, the term used by right-wing groups accusing Muslim men of marrying Hindu women and converting them.
The police have filed a First Information Report (FIR) and jail officials are sifting through the barracks to track down the mobile phone. So far, say the police, no phone or any device has been found. While interrogating Regar he has told the police it wasn’t his phone and he has not revealed whose it is either. Sources say only 2G jammers work at the jail complex, which also houses rape-accused spiritual leader Asaram Bapu.
Calling one of the videos his “last”, Regar says even though he has been kept in one of the jail’s safest cells, he fears a convict from West Bengal is planning to kill him.
Policeman said that, . “It seems he was addicted to hardline hate videos.” Also added that they learnt a lesson Regar, a father of three, was an introvert, but was obsessed with hate videos on his phone and was part of rabid groups
