Udaipur Tailor’s Beheading: Son Demands Security For Family, Death Penalty For Culprits

Udaipur: The son of Kanhaiya Lal, who was beheaded here earlier this week, demanded security for the family when Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot met them on Thursday.

“We have demanded security. My father was not provided security, but we should be given security. We have been assured of the same. The culprits should not be given anything less than a death sentence,” the victim’s son Yash said.

“I have spoken with the chief minister… He has provided us with financial help too. He has also assured me of a government job. He is cooperating with us, and we are ready to cooperate too,” he added.

Kanhaiya, a tailor, was brutally murdered by two men for allegedly sharing a social media post supporting now-suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma. He was cremated on Wednesday,

The two accused — Mohammad Riaz and Ghouse Mohammad – were arrested on Tuesday evening.

National Investigation Agency (NIA), which has taken over the investigation, found the duo to have Pakistani links — with Dawat-e-Islami, a religious movement based in Pakistan.

A case has been registered against them under the Unlaw Activities (Prevention) Act.
