Meanwhile, when the locals heard about what had happened, some of them reached Shadab’s house while several others created a ruckus at the nearby intersection, demanding strict action against Shadab.

The mother of the victim Danish said that when she reached Shadab’s house with some other women from the locality to complain about him to his family members, at first the latter’s mother passed it off as a joke. Later, Shadab’s family members rebuked her and others by asking them to go and do whatever they could. Shadab, meanwhile, threatened Danish’s mother with life when she protested against the cruelty he meted out to Danish.

Danish’s family then approached the police, who immediately sprung into action and took Shadab into custody by registering a case against him.
