A search for recent reports about a man murdered on a busy road led us to reports about an incident from Jan 10 in Hyderabad's Rajendranagar area. Local media reports identified the victim as Mohammed Khaleel a 33-year-old realtor. According to a report in The Hindu, Khaleel was also member of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and the incident happened near pillar number 248 of PVNR Expressway near the Rajendranagar-Attapur main road.
The Hindu quoted N Prakash Reddy, DCP, Shamshabad where the incident happened saying the victim would lend money on interest and was murdered by someone who took a loan from him and delayed payment. "Khaleel, who lends money on monthly interest, gave ₹15 lakh to the prime accused Rasheed, who failed to repay the amount as he incurred losses due to COVID-19 lockdown. The accused also borrowed money on interest from several private financiers," reported The Hindu.
The accused were identified as chef and owner of Garib Nawaz Hotel, Shaik Rasheed, 29, and his two workers -- Mohammed Azmath, 28, and Syed Imran.
