On Monday, a shocking revelation was made by the Uttar Pradesh police in the brutal murder of a 9-year-old girl, Anam Ahmad, who was found mutilated in a wheat field in Pilibhit. The body was recovered on December 3, with the girl’s abdomen cut open and her insides strewn around.
As per reports, the deceased was killed by her father, three uncles and grandfather to frame their rival, Shaqil Vaistava, in the murder case. They had allegedly fed her sleeping pills before the cold-blooded murder was executed.
Reason behind murder
“The girl’s father, Anis Ahmad from Madhopur village, had an old enmity with Shaqil dating back to 2018 when the former’s younger brother Shadab Ahmad had eloped with the latter’s sister and subsequently married her against the family’s will. Back then, an FIR was filed against Shadab under IPC section 376 (rape) and the matter is still pending in court,” SP Dinesh Kumar Prabhu told Times Of India.
As per the police, Anam’s family members grew suspicious when eyewitnesses at Sarainda Patti village told the cops that girl was not missing. Instead, she was taken by Shadab, his brothers and their father.
“Suspecting foul play, the five accused were taken into custody and they confessed to the gruesome murder during interrogation. We have recover recovered the murder weapon, brick and wrapper of sedative pills from the spot,” SP Dinesh added.
Sequence of events
On December 2, Shadab took Anam to a nearby village, Sarainda Patti, on the pretext of attending a religious function. Then he took her to a nearby orchard. There he was joined by Anis, his two younger brothers — Naseem and Saleem — and their father, Shahzade, police said.

The girl was hidden under a heap of paddy straw after the group gave her sedatives. Following this, the men returned home and pretended that girl had gone missing. To substantiate the lie, they even searched for her the entire night.
The following day, all five men returned to where they hid Anam. Upon reaching there, they smashed her head with a brick and stabbed her with a knife.
Moments later, the group fled the spot after mutilating the girl and dumping her. Then they tried to create an impression that someone else had committed the horrific act.
’Video by accused was a ruse’
Police further said that hours later, the accused men claimed that they found the missing girl.
“However, much to their surprise the girl was still breathing so they wasted about half an an hour questioning her as to who stabbed her instead of rushing her to a nearby medical facility, which led to her death. She was obviously incoherent and in agony. So she could not name anyone. The video the accused took of the questioning was a ruse,” SP Dinesh said.
“An FIR has been lodged against the girl’s father, three uncles and grandfather under IPC sections 302 (murder), 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender). The culprits have been sent to jail,” SHO (Amaria), Mukesh Shukla told TOI.
