Udaipur murder: Two accused arrested; Rajasthan CM promises speedy investigation

Two men beheaded a man in Udaipur’s Maldas street neighbourhood. A few days prior, he had posted on social media in support of Nupur Sharma. The two men also threatened the life of Prime Minister Modi in a video that they broadcast while bragging about the beheading. A video that apparently recorded the crime has been circulated online. “Both the accused of murder of youth in Udaipur have been arrested from Rajsamand. The investigation in this case will be done under the Case Officer Scheme and by ensuring speedy investigation, the criminals will be punished severely in the court. I again appeal to all to maintain peace,” said Gehlot.

“A statewide alert has been issued to all SPs & IGs to increase the mobility of forces and to maintain officers on the ground. We’re assessing the law and order situation to take further decisions,” said the ADG (L&O), Rajasthan on Udaipur murder.
