Kamlesh Tiwari murdered: Another case of brazen jihad?

Tiwari had shot to fame due to his comments on Prophet Mohammed some years ago, for which Muslims of Malda in West Bengal rioted for days on end

Kamlesh Tiwari, the former president of Hindu Mahasabha, has been killed in the Naka area of ​​Uttar Pradesh capital Lucknow. He was attacked with a sharp weapon, the doctors have confirmed. But he was also shot at as, apparently, the murderers wanted to make sure their victim does not survive.

A few days ago, Maulana Anwarul Haq had placed a reward of Rs 51 lakh on the head of Tiwari.

The maulana from Bijnor was in 2016 booked in a case of rape.

Tiwari had shot to fame due to his comments on Prophet Mohammed some years ago. The president of Hindu Mahasabha was arrested and sent to jail under the National Security Act after the remark. Islamists had held the Muslim-dominated Malda of West Bengal to ransom after the comment. The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court had recently revoked the National Security Act (NSA) slapped on the right-wing leader.

The police have recovered a revolver from the spot. Police say that the suspect is an acquaintance of Kamlesh Tiwari. The accused escaped after committing the crime.

Earlier, Tiwari, injured in the attack, was admitted to the trauma centre in a critical condition. He died during treatment.

The police are on a hunt for the accused in the case.

According to the information received, Tiwari was attacked in his house located in Khurshid Bagh.

The photo of the victim we have received shows stab injuries. We will keep our readers posted with the latest.

It is learned that two people came to meet Kamlesh Tiwari and even had tea with him. One was wearing a saffron outfit, which is believed to be a ploy to mislead the police.

Tiwari had founded the Hindu Samaj Party before the 2017 Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh.

A policeman had been deployed to protect Tiwari but the guard was not present at the time of the incident.

The police have found CCTV footage in which the two suspects are seen running away on a motorcycle after committing the murder. The victim had announced he would build a Godse temple on his ancestral land in Sitapur.

Tiwari was also a party on behalf of the Hindu Mahasabha in Ram Janmabhoomi case in the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, a Twitter user has claimed that 4,431 bullets have been seized by UP police during a raid at the house of Mukhtar Ansari’s son Abbas in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj.

Italian Beretta double-barrel guns, Slovenian single-barrel guns, Magnum Rifle guns, revolvers, Pistols etc have been seized.”
