Hyderabad: A 22-year-old auto driver from Chandrayangutta was allegedly murdered by a gang late on Saturday night as he objected their attempt to push his wife into flesh trade. According to police, the deceased, Ahmed Sidddiqui (22), a resident of Baba Nagar in Omer Colony of Chandrayangutta, was married to Asma Khan, a beautician. For the past few days, the couple were suffering from some health issues and they were facing a financial crunch.
They hardly had any money even to feed their nine-month-old daughter, according to the police. Sensing their need for money, one of the friends of Asma Khan, Asma Sultana, who is also a beautician, promised her to get a high-paid job at an event management company and told her to come to a place for a job interview. Trusting her friend, Asma went to a remote location in Chandrayangutta on Saturday night where one Mukthar was present.
“She (Asma Khan) was made to sit in a car along with Mukthar and Sultana. They took her for a ride, where two others boarded the car. Asma felt something fishy and called her husband to inform this and asked Mukthar to drop her,” said Chandrayangutta inspector N Rama Rao.
Ahmed, who went to pick up his wife, got infuriated on seeing her with three other men in the car and he had slapped her in a fit of rage. The couple left the place. However, after about half an hour, Ahmed called up Sultana and told her that he wanted to talk to her and Mukthar about their intention in taking his wife out during late at night, the Inspector said.
As discussed, they met at a roadside near Choice Hotel located at some distance from Chandrayangutta flyover. Within no time, an altercation began between Ahmed and Sultana. During the altercation, Mukthar attacked Ahmed and slit his throat with a sharp unidentified instrument, the inspector said.
“It was a two-and-a-half inches deep cut on his (Ahmed) throat, which resulted in his immediate death. He was declared brought dead by the doctors at Osmania General Hospital. We are suspecting that the accused might have used a glass-like material,” the inspector said.
When asked about the motive of Asma Sultana taking Asma Khan out during late night and introducing her to three unknown men, the inspector said, “We are suspecting prostitution angle in this. They might have tried to take advantage of Asma’s poverty. We are probing in this perspective and search is on to nab Sultana,” Inspector Rama Rao said.
