Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Police caught a man, who is accused of murdering his live-in partner and her 10-year-old daughter.

Police shot the accused Shamshad in his leg and then apprehended.

Shamshad, who hid his religious identity and had a relationship with a married lady, was living with her and her daughter from the last four years. After he was exposed, the accused forced her to convert, from last one year.

The woman and her daughter went missing following which the victims’ friend filed a missing complaint in March.

When a police team arrived at his house for investigation, they found the skeletons buried inside the house. And also fire arms were seized from the house.

The accused fled from the scene. It is said, the accused had murdered the woman and her daughter on March 28 and buried the two bodies in his own house.

Had her friend not informed the police that the women had been missing for long, Shamshad may have continued living without getting caught.

Meanwhile, the recovered skeletons have been sent for DNA tests.

Shamshad, who was on the run, was intercepted by police near Noor Nagar. Police fired at him and a bullet hit his leg. He has been admitted to a hospital and the police have seized a firearm, cartridges and a motorcycle from his possession.

The Hindu outfits who were informed about this development raised a banner of protest and termed this murder as an outcome of 'Love Jihad'. Hindu Yuva Vahini activists, accusing police, say, had the police acted on time, the woman and her daughter could have been saved.
