On Monday, Nishank Rathore, a third-year college student from Madhya Pradesh’s Raisen district, was discovered dead on the railway tracks close to the town of Obaidullaganj. Before the incident could be discovered, his father received a text message “Gustakh-e-Nabi ki ek saza, sar tan sey judaa.”

The message was delivered to Nishank Rathore’s father, Uma Shankar Rathore, at 5:44 on Sunday, that said, “Gustakh-e-Nabi ki ek saza, sar tan sey judaa.” After receiving the threatening message, Uma Shankar made an effort to find his son Nishant Rathore, 20. Nishank was enrolled in the third year of Oriental College in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh.

Nishank, however, was not found in his room, and his body was later discovered on the tracks in Obaidullaganj, in the Raisen region of Madhya Pradesh.

IG Suri said in a statement to India Today TV, “We have tracked his movements through CCTV cameras ever since he left his room in Bhopal. He was not with anyone when he was seen at a gas station at 5:09 p.m. He passed away as a result of approaching a train that was moving, according to the post-mortem.

Following Nupur Sharma’s incident in which she made remarks about the Prophet Mohammed, these kind of incidences have increased recently.

Since then, there have been several threats made against people who supported Nupur Sharma. The most brutal one was the public beheading of Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur in broad daylight, the murder of Umesh Kolhe, and several other incidents, including attacks on many who were just watching her videos.
