Sajid brutally killed his wife Juhi in the month of Ramzan? Read Fact Check
A screenshot is making rounds on social media. It has a clip of a sensational news item that says that a Muslim husband named Sajid murdered his wife Juhi (a convert from Hinduism) and chopped her body into seven pieces. He then packed pieces in a bag and carton and threw them away at a secluded corner of Sartita Vihar locality in Delhi.
A verified user named Nitin Shukla shared two screenshots with a caption: “She has defied her parents to marry outside religion. Now, what we are seeing in the holy month of Ramzan!”
Nitin Shukla’s Twitter bio reveals that he is a speaker life-coach, analyst and journalist.
Other social media users also made similar claims.
The DFRAC team probed the claim of “Murder in the month of Ramzan” and entered some keywords on Google. It discovered a news report of amarujala.com that was published on June 27, 2018 on its website. Its headline said: “Engineer soaked blood out of wife’s body before chopping it into pieces. His daughters kept crying seeing their dead mother.”
This murder case was covered by Aaj Tak (आजतक ) as well.
It is evident from the DFRAC fact-check that the murder took place around 5 years ago and it didn’t take place during the month of Ramzan as Ramzan fell in May-June in 2018. Thus, the claim of social media users is totally fake.
