A 42-year-old married woman named Neelam Yadav was stabbed and chopped into pieces in the middle of a market area on Saturday, December 3, 2022, leading to a brutal incident.
Neelam Yadav was a resident of Chhoti Deilori in Pirpainti police station in Bhagalpur, Bihar. Sheikh Shakeel Miyan mercilessly killed her in daylight. Neelam went to market with her son Kundan and was later returning home alone when she was unexpectedly assailed by Shakeel and his brother from the back.
As per the reports, in a brutal attack, the accused stabbed the woman to death and cut off her hands, legs, ears and breasts before fleeing the crime scene. Shakeel had bad intentions towards Neelam and was pressurizing her for a physical relationship. He used to visit the Kirana store run by Neelam and her husband Ashok, often for no apparent reason. The lady had asked him to stay away, due to which he started nursing a grudge. Shakeel’s farmland is also next to Yadav’s land.
Shakeel first hit Neelam Yadav on the back of the head. When she crumpled, he stabbed her numerous times in the head, back, and stomach with a sharp weapon. He then cut Neelam’s Yadav ears, hands, legs, and breasts off before running away.
Bystanders helped her on account of seeing her writhing in pain, they lifted her up and took her to a nearby sub-divisional hospital from where she was referred to the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical Hospital, but Neelam Yadav succumbed to her injuries during the treatment. However, before her death, Neelam Yadav disclosed the identity of the attacker.

Bihar Police claimed the attack was due to a ‘financial dispute’. SSP Baburam said that the victim had taken some money from the accused, and they had argued previously also over this.
The Bhagalpur police, meanwhile, have detained 5 people including Shakeel Miyan’s brother for questioning while the latter is still at large.
