Udaipur Kanhaiya Lal Murder Case – Link to Pakistan and Strange Link to The Kashmir Files
- A tailor, Kanhaiya Lal, was brutally murdered in Udaipur
- The two assailants used sharp cleavers to repeatedly assault and chop him to death
- Kanhaiya Lal had gotten in trouble for a social media post supporting Nupur Sharma’s remark about the Prophet Muhammad
- One of the attackers is linked to Pakistan’s Dawat-e-Islami and traveled to Karachi in 2014
The tailor had apparently made a Facebook post supporting Nupur’s comments for which he was arrested on June 10 and then released on bail on June 15. Kanhaiya Lal defended himself by claiming that he does not know how to use smartphones and that his 9-year-old son posted it by mistake. Nonetheless, Lal began receiving threatening messages on June 17, which he reported to the police.
In an attempt to defuse the situation, the parties involved were called to the local police station to resolve the issue. From the barbaric incident, it appears that the situation was underestimated by the cops and Assistant Sub-Inspector Bhanwarlal of Dhan Mandi Police Station was suspended for negligence.
Later, Lal complained that Nazim visited his store and threatened to open it. While Nazim’s role in the whole conspiracy has yet to be probed, a strange analogy haunts an incident depicted in the film – The Kashmir Files.
In the 1990s, a young valley engineer, BK Ganjoo, was reportedly betrayed by militants, who killed him after receiving information about his location. Neighbor Abdul, however, later denied leaking the information and allegedly said he and his family had also become targets of terrorists. However, Ganjoo’s family maintains that it was their neighbor who gave BK. Similarly, another Kashmiri Pandit Girija Tickoo was given away by locals as she went to collect her salary.
