Triple Murder Shock in Madhya Pradesh: Shahnawaz Khan Allegedly Kills Sister-in-law and Nieces

Rewa: A shocking case of triple murder surfaced on May 4th (Saturday) in the Govindgarh police station area of Rewa district, Madhya Pradesh. Shahnawaz Khan is accused of killing his 25-year-old sister-in-law Hasina Khan and her two nieces, 2-year-old Alia and 3-year-old Anabiya. After committing the murders, Shahnawaz dumped the bodies of the children in a nearby pond. Upon receiving information about the crime, a police team led by the Superintendent of Police (SP) rushed to the spot and initiated a search for the bodies with the assistance of the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) and local divers. The accused has been arrested and is currently under interrogation.

The triple murder, which occurred in ward number three near Idgah, has sparked widespread concern. The deceased woman's husband resides and works in Visakhapatnam, while she stayed with her in-laws. The accused reportedly had a minor altercation with his sister-in-law, resulting in him striking her with a steel rod and then stabbing her with a knife. When her daughters witnessed the murder, he proceeded to attack them to cover up his crime.

Shahnawaz left Hasina’s body, covered in blood, in the house, while he stuffed the bodies of his nieces into a sack and disposed of them in the pond. The rest of the family members were not present at home during the murders, as they had gone to Jabalpur (Gurh as per some reports) to attend a wedding ceremony. Seizing the opportunity, Shahnawaz committed the heinous act. The police team, accompanied by Superintendent of Police (SP) Vivek Singh and Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Anil Sonkar, recovered the bodies and initiated their investigation. The authorities continued to search the pond for the remains of the two girls.

According to Anil Sonkar, Shahnawaz and his sister-in-law Hasina had a fight late on Saturday night. Enraged, he strangled her to death after hitting her head with a steel rod. "Hasina Khan lived with her children, mother-in-law, and two brother-in-laws in ward number 3 of Govindgarh town, while her husband is employed outside. Hasina’s elder brother-in-law had gone to Jabalpur for a wedding with her mother, and the younger brother-in-law Shahnawaz Khan was at home. There was a dispute between the brother-in-law and the sister-in-law on Saturday evening. The brother-in-law used a steel rod to hit Hasina in the head during this altercation. He then used a knife to cut her throat," said Sonkar.

The police added, "Hasina’s two daughters, who were present, started crying when they saw what had happened. Subsequently, the perpetrator also murdered them and disposed of their corpses in the pond. He is being questioned by police after being brought into custody. Divers are assisting the police team in their hunt for the girls’ bodies. The conflict between the brother-in-law and the sister-in-law is being ascertained."
