On Tuesday, a video emerged on social media showing two men entering a tailor's shop in Udaipur and proceeding to attack him with knives. In a separate video posted by the two men, the duo is heard admitting to the murder and threatening PM Narendra Modi.
The police arrested the two accused in the Bheem area of Rajsamand district on Tuesday night. The accused were caught while they were trying to flee. The Udaipur court on Friday transferred the Kanhaiya Lal murder case to the National Investigation Agency.
