Udaipur Tailor Murder: If the first two fail, two men were waiting, NIA says

Investigators said today that two men were “waiting” to kill Udaipur tailor Kanhaiya Lal, and the two who killed him failed. The Jaipur Special Court detained all four men in the National Investigation Agency (NIA) until July 12.

The mob attacked them outside the courts in Jaipur, but NIA immediately put them in a waiting van to avoid serious injury.

Last Tuesday, Kanhaiya Lal, 48, was killed by Riaz Akhtari and Ghouse Mohammad over a social media post in support of BJP’s Nupur Sharma, who later commented on the Prophet Mohammed. The murderers filmed the act and later posted a video boasting that they had retaliated against “insults to Islam” and also threatened Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

They were arrested hours after the murder, and the two waiting (identified by NIA as Mosin and Asif) were arrested Thursday night on charges of conspiracy.

Mosin and Asif also helped the murderer escape from the scene, NIA said. A scooter owned by one of the murderers, Mohammad Guhaus, was found parked in Udaipur. This is an important link to the survey.
