Muzaffarnagar (UP): A skeleton was found buried on Saturday under the floor of the Nara village house of a man who confessed to having killed a man four years ago to a few people, one of whom made a video of it and uploaded on social media.
The skeleton is believed to be of one Mohammad Hasan who had gone missing four years ago. Police have sent the skeleton for forensic examination.
Station House Officer (SHO), Mansoorpur Police Station, Brijender Singh Rawat said, “We have recovered a skeleton buried in the floor of the house of one Salman. The excavation of the house was done in connection with a missing case of one Mohammad Hasan, a native of the same village who has been missing since November 12, 2018.” “We have lodged a case of murder and arrested Salman. The recovered skeleton has been sent for forensic examination to ascertain if it is of Mohammad Hasan,” the SHO added.
Reportedly a few days ago, Hasan had made a confession before some people that he had buried his body in his house. The confession was recorded by someone and shared online.
The video of the confession started doing rounds on Friday prompting family members of Hasan to inform police.
“Salman in his confession says that he killed and buried the person four years ago which coincides with the disappearance of Mohammad Hasan. Acting on this information we sent a team to his house which recovered the skeleton,” Rawat said.
