While citizens paid tribute to Hindu leader Kamlesh Tiwari who was shot dead at his residence in Lucknow, a section of users from a certain religion on Facebook think the ‘huge loss’ otherwise as they reacted ‘HAHA’ to the news post, which is deemed contrary to the spirit of human values.
Social media is criticising the people who left laughing reactions over the saddest news. The leader of Hindu Mahasabha brutally attacked by unknown miscreants on Friday afternoon.
Eyewitnesses say, two strangers, one of whom hid his face by wearing a saffron scarf, met with him on the pretext of giving Diwali sweets and, once inside his residence, allegedly slit his throat and shot him several times with a firearm before fleeing the spot.
Mr Tiwari died while he was being rushed to the hospital. The police have recovered a pistol from the scene of the crime.
In a recent development, three people who were detained from Surat have been arrested after police launched a probe. They are Khurshid Ahmed Pathan, Faizan Pathan and Maulana Mohsin Sheikh.
According to UP DGP OP Singh, three people who have been arrested are the ones who planned Kamlesh Tiwari’s murder. The three are in police custody now while the two attackers seen in the CCTV are absconding.
“A joint team of UP and Gujarat Police has detained three persons and is interrogating them. Their names are Maulana Mohsin Sheikh, Faizan and Khurshid Ahmed Pathan. Two other accused were also detained but released later, they are being monitored,” says UP DP OP Singh.
“In the initial interrogation no criminal background of the three people, who have been detained, has been established yet. If needed, we will take them into remand, bring them to UP and question them,” says UP DGP.
Kamlesh Tiwari was murdered for Prophet Muhammad remarks made in 2015, says UP DGP
Kamlesh Tiwari was the one who founded the Hindu Samaj Party 2 years ago. In 2015, he allegedly made infamous remarks against the Prophet Muhammad, which stirred a massive controversy and protests.
He was arrested in link-up with the case and charged under the National Security Act (NSA), which the Allahabad High Court recently revoked.
