Gehlot asks BJP to clarify on alleged links with the Udaipur murder accused

The Bharatiya Janata Party was accused of having ties to the suspects in the horrifying murder of Kanhaiya Lal Teli in Udaipur by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday. Gehlot demanded that the BJP explain.

On June 28, Mohammad Riyaz and Ghouse Mohammad decapitated Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor, in Udaipur because he had backed Nupur Sharma.

“Everyone is aware of the accused’s affiliation with the BJP in the Udaipur beheading case. Recently, it was discovered that the defendant leased a home from another Muslim, “CM Ashok Gehlot remarked.

Mr. Gehlot requested a response from the BJP in response to claims that it had connections to one of the suspects in the recent murder of a tailor in Udaipur.

Mr. Gehlot demanded an explanation from the BJP about claims that they assisted one of the accused by asking the police to withdraw their case since the accused is a BJP employee.

“The property owner complained to the police after alleging that they (the suspects who decapitated Kanhaiya) were not paying rent. However, even before the police could look into the situation, BJP members began phoning the landlord, identifying themselves as BJP members, and pleading with him not to bother the party member “Mr. Gehlot stated.

He requested that BJP officials clarify the accused’s “relationship” with the party.

Photos of the main suspect, Riaz Akhtari, with some BJP leaders, including the Leader of Opposition Gulab Chand Kataria, appeared on social media as the National Investigation Agency (NIA) detained the seventh suspect in connection with the Udaipur killing. This prompted Congress to claim that Akhtari was a BJP agent.

The BJP, though, has refuted the accusations.

On June 28, Kanhaiyya Lal Teli, a tailor by trade, was brutally murdered because he had posted on social media in favor of Nupur Sharma, a former BJP spokeswoman.

Public anger over the beheading tragedy spread across the nation.

In the video, the attackers introduced themselves as Riyaz Akhtari and Ghouse Mohammad. In the video, Riyaz uses a sharp object to strike Kanhaiya Lal, 47, while Ghouse records the incident on his phone.

Riyaz and Ghouse were detained in the town of Bhim, in the Rajsamand district

Farhad Mohammad Sheikh, a 31-year-old suspect, has been named the seventh defendant.

Farhad Mohammad, charged yesterday, was an active participant in the plot to assassinate Kanhaiya Lal and was a close criminal ally of one of the top assassins, Riyaz Attari.

On June 29, the Udaipur beheading case was re-registered, and the NIA assumed control of the investigation.

Six defendants were previously detained in this matter on June 29, July 1, and July 4, respectively.
