Hyderabad: Automan killed in fight over wife in sex business
Hyderabad: A 22-year-old autorickshaw driver, who protested his wife being pushed into the flesh trade by one of her friends, was brutally murdered by the aides of his wife’s friends at Chandrayanagutta on Saturday.
Inspector N. Ramarao said the deceased, Md Sameer Ahmed Siddiqui, 22, a resident of Hafeezbaba Nagar was in love with Asma Sultana, 21, and married her a year ago and they have a nine-month old daughter named Sarah. The couple and Siddiqui’s parents and brothers were staying in the same house.
A few days ago, Sameer fell sick and could not go to work. Asma, who was working as a beautician, contacted her friend Asma Sultana, who is also a beautician and told her that her finances were critical and she is not able to buy even a milk bottle for her daughter and asked Sultana to help her find a job. Sultana promised to help her and on the same day at around 10.30 pm Sultana and her husband came to Asma’s house and discussed the job. They also gave a new milk bottle for her daughter. Siddiqui’s parents became angry at this visit. Due to this Siddiqui shifted to another house. On Saturday night, Sultana called Asma and told her about a job in an event managing firm at Bandlaguda. She said they can meet her boss and come back soon.
“Siddiqui dropped them in his autorickshaw till the main road where one Mukthar was waiting in a car. After some distance, two men boarded the car. Fearing danger, Asma called her husband and told Mukthar to drop her home,” said inspector Ramarao.
Meanwhile, Siddiqui who was waiting for Asma, found three men in the car, and slapped Asma. He dropped her at home and followed the car in his autorickshaw. When he called Sultana to find out why she took his wife with other men she told to meet her near the flyover. “When he saw Sultana she was in the car and Mukthar and two others were outside. Seeing them, he picked up a plank and attacked them. They escaped and Mukthar stabbed him,” the inspector added. The object made a three inch deep cut on Siddiqui’s neck and he died on the spot. “We do not know why Sultana took her out late at night and why three men were in the car. We suspect they were trying to lure her into prostitution,” concluded the inspector.
Based on a complaint from his brother Hameed, a murder case was registered against Asma Sultana, Mukthar and two other men and a hunt is on to find them.
