The occurrences of Hindu girls being murdered by Muslim men because they turned down their approaches appear to be unabated. The frequent cases of love jihad in 2022 have shocked the nation, murder of Shraddha Walkar, Rubika Paharia, Urvashi Vaishnav, Neelam Devi, Nidhi Gupta, Ankita Kumari and others are example of this. The police reported on December 27, 2022, that a Muslim guy named Shahbaz Khan allegedly killed a 20-year-old Hindu girl by stabbing her 51 times with a screwdriver after she refused to talk to him. This awful crime occurred in Chhattisgarh’s Korba District.
This terrible occurrence occurred on December 24, 2022, near the pump house colony of South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL), as per city superintendent of police (Korba) Vishwadipak Tripathi. “When the accused showed up at the house, the victim was by herself. He put a pillow over her mouth to block her screams and stabbed her 51 times with a screwdriver”, according to the police.
When he got home, the victim’s brother discovered her lying in a pool of blood. The official reported that the victim later passed away in the hospital.
Neelkusum Patra was recognized as the victim. Additionally, early investigations have shown that the victim and the accused, Shadab Khan, both from Jashpur District, were friends from past three years when the accused was a conductor of a passenger bus.
Khan eventually relocated to Gujarat’s Ahmedabad for employment, and the two kept in touch by phone, the official said. However, things took an unusual turn when she refused to speak to him and the accused started threatening her parents.
While the accused Shadab felt abandoned and assumed his prey’s relationship with another man, the victim Neelkusum ceased communicating with Shadab due to his inappropriate connections and interaction with other girls. The victim’s family claims that before, Shahbaz threatened Neelkusum with grave repercussions if she ended their connection.

Once again, a case of Love Jihad has come to the fore in Satna. A couple was traveling in the train. On the information of VHP and Bajrang Dal, the railway police deboarded the couple from the train in Satna. The little girl was underage, hence was taken into police custody. Whereas, the family members of the girl were informed and called to Satna.
Satna City Kotwali Police and GRP had dropped the man and a minor girl traveling by Patna-Secunderabad Express at Satna station on Sunday night. Both are residents of Muzaffarpur. The young man is a Muslim, and he identified himself as Sahil Khan. However, he had extended their intimacy by introducing himself to her as ‘Bhavani Singh’.
According to Bajrang Dal post holder, Raj Bahadur Mishra, information regarding a young man riding in the train with a little girl was obtained. During the trip, there was a fight between the two. The passengers began to have suspicions that the young man and the young girl may not be of the same religion.
Over the phone, one of the passengers told a friend in Satna about this and through him the Bajrang Dal Karyakartas learned of the news. The GRP and City Kotwali police were notified by the Bajrangis. Many Bajrangi and VHP karyakartas also arrived at the station. The police, who climbed from both ends of the train as it approached Satna station’s platform number 1, immediately apprehended the young man and the young girl. They were both taken to the GRP post and questioned there. The young man is Muslim, and his real name is Sa .
According to the GRP, an investigation is being conducted.
“This is a case of ‘false identity’ for Love Jihad, and it has been observed that thousands of Hindu Girls are trapped by such men every year. The trapped girls are either converted to Islam after marriage, or they are either raped, or murdered if they refuse to convert” said Siddhant Mohite, Founder of Saffron Think Tank.
