In the video the accused was seen saying that Lord Shiva has sent him to her as he is Shiva’s follower. He punched victim in chest and said, “Maharani hai tu (you are a queen).” After the blow when woman fell on ground he dragged her by her hair and further hits on her head using an umbrella.

It was rumoured that accused killed the victim as he speculated him of being a witch, however, police denied such statements and declared it as a random killing.
