Top Muslim Body Condemns Udaipur Killing, Calls It

Udaipur tailors complained about the threat a few days before the murder: police officers

A few weeks before his horrific murder on the camera, Udaipur tailor Kanhaiya Lal complained about the threat of the murder in a social media post in support of BJP leader Nupur Sharma. ..

Kanhaiya Lal was arrested on June 11 after complaining to him over the post. Five days after his bail, he told police that he was being threatened and harassed by his neighbors.

Police mediated a session between the tailor, a neighbor who allegedly threatened him, and senior community leaders on both sides, and the problem was deemed resolved.

Kanhaiya Lal has submitted a statement to the police that no further action is required. Then the threat started again.

Following Kanhaiya’s complaint, the assistant inspector who oversaw the mediation was suspended. Police are asking community leaders who intervened to mediate peace at the time.
