The victim was identified as Ghulam Mohammad, a resident of Sohi village that falls under the Pahasu Police Station here.

Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Arvind Kumar Mishra said a 19-year-old man named Yusuf from Sohi had allegedly kidnapped an 18-year-old Hindu girl, a resident of Fazalpur village, also in the Pahasu area, on 27 April. Yusuf was a distant relative of Ghulam, the victim.

Mishra said the activists saw Ghulam in a mango orchard, then dragged him to a secluded spot and beat him to death.

The ADM said the men wanted to know about the whereabouts of Yusuf.

SP (city) Man Singh Chauhan said an FIR had been lodged against the "unidentified activists".
