Ajit Cheeta assaulted his wife and killed both of his daughters. No motives were cited in police reports.A video clip showing a homicide scene involving a woman and two children has been circulating on social media. The video's caption reads that the name of the perpetrator is Ajmal Khan, who had allegedly murdered a Hindu family when they refused to marry their daughter to him. However, Khan is not the man in the video, and the circumstances surrounding the incident are not known.

The man in the video featured near the scene is Ajit Cheeta from Ajmer, Rajasthan. in a statement, Ajmer police said that Cheeta killed his daughters Angel, 5 Anu, 7, and injured his wife, Kavita, before attempting to take his own life. Both Ajit and Kavita are Hindus, and the statement did not mention any communal/ religious reasons for the cause of the murder.

According to The Times of India, Surendra Singh Jodha, Station House Officer (SHO) of Sadar Police Station, said that Cheeta, a Kharwa's Bhawanipura Colony resident, fought with his wife and attacked her with a sharp knife on her wrist and throat. Their children arrived at the scene after hearing screams. Cheeta attacked both his children and injured them as well.

Even the other local media outlets reported that Cheeta slashed the throats of both daughters with a knife. As a result of the incident, Cheeta suffered wrist and throat injuries.

While a similar incident did take place, it is not the one depicted in the social media video. As such, we have marked the claim as false.
