Aayush and Ahaan died but Piyush suffered minor injuries.

Chilling details have emerged in a double murder case in Uttar Pradesh’s Budaun, in which a man allegedly walked into a neighbour’s home, asked for money and killed two children. 

The alleged killer, Sajid, ran a barber shop opposite the victims’ house and knew their father Vinod, police said. On Tuesday evening, Sajid visited their house, ostensibly to borrow Rs 5,000, but Vinod was not at home. When Vinod’s wife left the room to make tea, he allegedly attacked her three children.

The police claim when Sajid was caught, he fired at the cops and was killed in an encounter. The double murders sparked tension in the city, with residents setting the barber’s shop on fire. 

The police have dismissed occult rumours related to the killings. Police are also monitoring social media to curb the spread of rumours, senior police officer Alok Priyadarshani said.

According to the family, Sajid told Vinod’s wife Sangeeta that his pregnant wife was in hospital and he needed Rs 5,000 for her treatment. Sangeeta called her husband Vinod on the phone, who reportedly told her to loan him the money. 

“I gave him the money and he told me his wife’s delivery was scheduled for 11pm. He said he was anxious and I told him not to be worried. I gave him the tea and he went upstairs with my son,” Sangeeta told NDTV.

Sajid allegedly asked her oldest son, 11-year-old Aayush, to show him his mother’s beauty salon upstairs. The boy led him to the first floor, and then the second floor. On the second floor, Sajid allegedly switched off the lights and attacked Aayush with a knife.

Sajid was allegedly slitting Aayush’s throat when his youngest brother Ahaan (6) walked in. Sajid allegedly grabbed Ahaan and killed him in a similar manner. He went on to attack their other brother, Piyush, but the seven-year-old was able to run away and hide, the police said. Aayush and Ahaan died but Piyush suffered minor injuries.

The family told the police that Sajid fled with his brother Javed, who was waiting outside on a bike. Both Sajid and Javed were involved in the crime, the family has alleged.

An inspector was shot and has been admitted to hospital, the police said. Javed is still missing.

An FIR has been registered against the two brothers. The police said the motive behind the murders has not been established so far, but it appears to be a dispute between Sajid and Vinod.

However, Vinod has denied any dispute. “I had no dispute with him. I was away from home for work when he came to the house. One of my sons was able to escape him and warn his mother,” Vinod told NDTV.
