Body of madarsa manager found in gunny bag

Hours before a joint team of Crime Branch of Delhi Police and Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided Tablighi Jamaat chief Maulana Muhammad Saad Kandhlawi’s Shamli farmhouse, the local police recovered the body of a missing madarsa manager near the farmhouse on Yamuna banks early Thursday morning.

The half-charred, mutilated body was recovered in a gunny bag. The police sent the body for autopsy and detained two suspects for questioning.

Saad is wanted by Delhi Police for holding a congregation in Nizamuddin markaz and later harbouring thousands of Jamaatis there for days, despite lockdown being imposed to prevent the spread of coronavirus and not informing the authorities.

Maulana Saad has since gone underground and has been posting clippings claiming to be in isolation.

As per reports, a team of Shamli police recovered a gunny bag on Yamuna river banks containing the body of Mufti Sufiyan, manager of Madarsa Jamiya Hudlalil Aalmin in Mawi Kakaur in Kairana.

The mufti was missing since last Thursday and a report of his disappearance was lodged last Monday.

After preliminary inquiry, the police said that the body was half-burnt and mutilated which indicated that the killer eliminated the manager the same day he disappeared and tried to burn the body to conceal crime. The killers later dumped the body in a gunny bag.

Two suspects were detained and the police were waiting for the autopsy report to start a probe.

Mufti Sufiyan took charge as manager of the madarsa in 2017 and all angles are being probed to close in on the killers.
