New Delhi: The fifth accused in the Udaipur's tailor Kanhaiya Lal murder case was on Tuesday produced in the Special NIA Court where he was granted judicial custody till July 12.

The accused who has been identified as 30-year-old Mohammad Moshin was arrested for his alleged role in recce by NIA in Udaipur and was today brought under high security and produced before the Special Court Judge in Jaipur, an official source told.

He was picked up after the killers allegedly took his name during interrogation.

Mohsin is believed to have helped the two prime accused in the murder - Riyaz Attari and Mohammad Ghouse.

The 30-year-old had helped the main accused to survey or recce the movements of tailor Kanhiya Lal.

Kanhaiya Lal had on 15 June flagged to the police that he was receiving threats. The tailor's murder was planned and carried out by Ghouse and Riyaz on 28 June.

The killers had a backup plan in place that had Moshin and an Asif on standby if Ghouse and Riyaz failed in their attempt. The first two helped the latter escape after the murder.

Police sources say Moshin was part of the conspiracy but his exact role in the murder is yet to be ascertained.

The four other accused were presented in an NIA court on Saturday and were remanded to 10-day police custody.

The fact that killers Riyaz and Ghouse were not alone and that they had multiple links in Udaipur is now emerging as the investigation progresses, officials said.

The police are also questioning Nazim, the man who had initially filed an FIR against Kanhaiya Lal.

It also appears that the killers had wanted to attack at least one more target in Udaipur, a businessman whose house they also allegedly surveyed.

The businessman, a tire dealer, had asked for protection for himself and his family.
