Hyderabad | 3rd April 2021
A local MIM leader, 40-year-old Asad Khan, was hacked to death on a busy road in broad daylight in Hyderabad's Old City area on April 1.
Reports say that Khan, who was himself not known to be a law-abiding citizen, was attacked by a group of assailants while travelling on his two-wheeler. The assailants attacked him with sharp weapons near a public hall on Shastripuram Road in the Vattapally area. After stabbing him, the assailants fled from the spot. Though he was rushed to Osmania Hospital immediately, he was declared brought dead.
Following the incident, the police had said that they suspected that the killing was a "revenge murder", committed, in all likelihood, by the family members of one Amjad Ali Khan, who was murdered by Asad Khan and his associates in 2018.
