“Three youths arrived at the shop of Nikhil. They took him to a nearby road saying they need to talk to him. Then they hacked him indiscriminately and fled after confirming his death,” a police official said.

 He was killed in a manner similar to that of several bloggers, rights activists and university teachers.

Nikhil earlier served three-month in jail in a case over slandering of Prophet Muhammad.

Several people including, foreign nationals, bloggers, human rights activists and university teachers were hacked to death in the last one year.
