West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday condemned the killing of a labourer from West Bengal, who was burnt alive to "save a girl from 'love jihad'".

The incident took place in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district and the accused, Shambunath Raigar, also recorded the horrific act which was uploaded on social media. The video has gone viral.

"We strongly condemn the heinous killing of a labourer from Bengal in Rajasthan. How can people be so inhuman? Sad," Banerjee tweeted.

Police are interrogating the accused, according to Rajsamand Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar.

The video which has gone viral shows the perpetrator hitting the man with an agricultural tool, pouring kerosene oil on his body and burning him alive. Raigar also warned that "those indulging in 'love jihad' will meet the same fate".

The tool used for the murder, the victim's motorbike and his slippers were found on the crime scene.

According to Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria, a special investigation team (SIT) has been formed to probe the case.
