A devoted Salman Khan
fan, who allegedly killed and robbed a courier firm employee, is reported to have quoted a line from the film Wanted
when asked why he committed the acts.
Talha Mohammed Munaf Ansari was arrested on June 20 for the murder of Jeetu Sadarangani alias Govind, an employee of Mamaji Courier Cargo.
According to IANS
, a police officer said: "He is a huge fan of Salman Khan. We recovered a photograph from him in which he is posing with Khan.
"Even when our team asked him why he killed and robbed Sadarangani, he told them, 'Maine jo ek bar commitment kar di toh phir main apne aap ki bhi nahin sunta' ('When I have made a commitment I don't even listen to myself')."
After allegedly killing the victim, Ansari is said to have stolen over Rs 9.5 lakh in cash from him. According to police sources, the accused had accumulated a huge debt, which he had promised to pay back. It is claimed that he committed the crime to honour his promise of repaying a loan.
The Salman Khan fan had met his idol on the set of Dabangg
, where he was photographed with him.
