Udaipur murder: Curfew relaxed for 10 hours tomorrow, internet restored in few districts
Udaipur/IBNS: The curfew imposed in Rajasthan's Udaipur following the murder of tailor Kanhaiya Lal will be relaxed for 10 hours on Sunday, the district administration has announced.
Internet services have also been restored in a few districts in Rajasthan.
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.
A special court in Jaipur gave custody of all four accused in the case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) till July 12.
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, apparently supporting former BJP leader Nupur Sharma's remark on Prophet Mohammed.
