Two men armed with a cleaver allegedly killed Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur’s Dhan Mandi area on Tuesday and posted videos online where the accused said that they are avenging the “insult to Prophet” triggering cases of violence in the Rajasthan city, a part of which was placed under curfew.

In a video clip, one of the two assailants declared that they had beheaded the man and went on to threaten Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying their knife will get him as well.

The police have arrested Riaz Akhtari, the man who allegedly hacked at the tailor’s neck, and Ghouse Mohammad, who allegedly filmed the crime, and detained three others for their involvement in the case.

The protest was held in all district offices where the protestors burnt effigies and raised slogans for the justice for Kanhaiya Lal with placards.

In Hyderabad, protests took place at Koti Junction, Abid Road, LB Nagar Circle, Lal Darwaza, Maheshwaram Crossroads, and Kandukur Circle.
