The murdered Amrabati man sent a post of Nupur Sharma in a group with Muslims: police officer
Umesh Kolhe, a 54-year-old chemist in Amravati, Maharashtra, who was killed by two men last month, misleads a message in support of former BJP spokesman Nupur Sharma’s comment on the Prophet Muhammad on the public WhatsApp group that is offending the murderer. The police said they shared it.
The case was transferred to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) by Federal Interior Minister Amit Shah on Saturday after a local BJP unit accused police of trying to hide the reason behind the killing.
The murder was very similar to the murder that took place this week in Udaipur, Rajasthan. He was brutally attacked by two men who attempted to be decapitated by tailor Kanhaiyaral as he shared a post online to assist Nupur Sharma.
According to a police officer quoted by news agency PTI, “Kolhe ran a medical store in the city of Amrabati. He posted to several WhatsApp groups to assist Nupur Sharma in response to her comments. Allegedly shared. He was a member of some Muslims, including his customers. “
On June 21, on his way home from the store, at around 10 pm, two men on motorcycles broke their throats and killed them, resulting in a way raid. His 27-year-old son and his wife were accompanying him in another car.
