The Inside Story

Local Cloth Merchant Accused of Serial Killing in Fursatganj, Uttar Pradesh, India

Residents of Fursatganj, Uttar Pradesh, are now breathing a sigh of relief after the arrest of a 57-year-old local cloth merchant Sadashiv Sahu, who has confessed to killing 22 men in the past four years. Mr Sahu, who allegedly targeted middle-aged men over the age of 45, committed his first killing in April 2002 and claimed his last victim, a 60-year-old man, in November 2004.

In his confession, Mr Sahu explained that he was "overpowered by a strange urge to kill my prey," and that he would return home and have a "very peaceful sleep" after committing the murders. The suspect would "hunt" for unwary middle-aged men after dusk and shoot them with a gun pressed against their chests to muffle the noise.

Although some villagers are still skeptical about the police's claim that Mr Sahu was responsible for all the killings, there have been no murders in the Fursatganj area since his arrest. The police say that they will be filing a charge sheet before the first week of February.

Neighbours of the frail and diminutive businessman say that Mr Sahu had never posed any problems. He was a deeply religious man, who would spend his free time reading holy books. However, others like Balmati Devi, whose husband was shot dead in June, are seething with anger against Mr Sahu. "My husband had no enemies. Please go and ask the heartless man why he chose my husband and left me alone to fend for our six children," she says.
