On Friday, Botua and Ali allegedly stabbed Ansari with the sword and chopped off his hands.

Later, Ansari was hacked multiple times and the duo fled from the spot.

Police were informed immediately. Cops rushed to the spot and recovered Ansari's body. Sources said a few hours after the incident, cops were able to nab three persons. A murder case has been registered and a probe is going on.
