Alt News performed a Google search with simple keywords ‘Nagpur murder CCTV’ and found several reports on the incident.

According to The Indian Express, “The victim has been identified as Balya Belekar, who has a lengthy criminal record. According to sources, Belekar used to run a gambling den and was killed to avenge the death of a man he had murdered in 2001.”

Chetan Hazare, Rajat Tambe, Aasim Ludelkar, Bharat Pandit, Chintu Nagachari, Aakash Khare, and Aniket Manthapurvar were arrested by the police. There is no mention of rape in the reports.

The allegation that RSS members murdered a Dalit IAS officer and raped his minor daughter are false.
