Kanhaiya Lal was murdered on June 28 by two cleaver-wielding men who filmed the grisly killing and later gloated about it in a video.
He was at his shop in Udaipur's busy Dhan Mandi market when the attackers Gos Mohammad and Riyaz Akhtari walked in posing as customers before attacking him.
The duo was arrested hours after the crime and later, two more people, who were allegedly involved in the recce of Kanahaiya's shop were arrested.
Days before Kanahiya Lal was killed, he had informed the local police that he had received threats over a social media post shared from his account, apparently supporting former BJP leader Nupur Sharma's remark on Prophet Mohammed.
