In a shocking and tragic incident reported on Sunday in Trupthi Nagar, Udupi, Karnataka, a family of four fell victim to a brutal murder. The victims include Haseena (46), her daughter Afnan (23), Aynaz (21), and son Aseem (12). The murderer, who wore a mask, stabbed the victims in their residence, leaving a community in shock and grief.
The police, responding swiftly to the heinous crime, have formed five special teams led by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) ranked officers to apprehend the killer. The investigation has gathered momentum with the collection of video footage showing the accused disembarking from an auto near the crime scene. Additionally, the murderer was seen falling from a bike in the vicinity.
The assailant’s identity is yet to be disclosed, but the police have taken two individuals into custody for questioning in connection with the case. The motive behind the gruesome act remains unclear, and authorities are exploring various angles, including the possibility of a jilted lover being involved.
The murderer, displaying a chilling lack of remorse, not only killed the family members but also assaulted Haseena’s mother-in-law. Aseem, the youngest victim, was playing outside and, upon entering the house, became a tragic target of the assailant’s violence.
In a distressing turn of events, a young girl from the neighborhood, attempting to raise an alarm and help the victims, was threatened by the killer, forcing her to flee in fear. Surprisingly, the murderer did not take any valuables from the home, raising questions about the motive behind the brutal attack.
Haseena’s husband, who works in Dubai, was not present during the horrifying incident. Afnan, one of the victims, worked with Air India and had returned home on leave, making the loss even more poignant for the grieving family.
As the community grapples with the shock and sadness of this senseless act, the police are diligently working to unravel the circumstances surrounding the murders. The formation of special investigative teams underscores the urgency and gravity of the situation as they strive to bring the perpetrator to justice and provide solace to the mourning community.
