Udaipur killing: NIA looking at role of radicalised groups

A local court on Thursday sent the two men accused of killing a tailor here to 14-day judicial custody for an identification parade, an official said.

The NIA is looking into the role of "local self-radicalised" groups and other linkages of the two prime accused in the brutal killing of Udaipur tailor Kanhaiya Lal Teli, officials said on Thursday.

The NIA said the two wanted to "strike terror among the masses across the country" through the gruesome act.

Officials said the agency is looking into the role of "local self-radicalised gangs" and their possible international linkages even as preliminary probe suggests that more people could be involved in the conspiracy to murder Teli.

The NIA officials said the two became members of Pakistan-based Sunni Islamic organisation Dawat-e-Islami via a mobile application and one of them was in touch with some people in Pakistan. They, however, said it was too early to draw conclusions yet.

A team of around 10 NIA personnel, led by an inspector general-rank officer, is camping in Udaipur to take the probe forward.

The Karachi-based Dawat-e-Islami website says it is a "global non-political Islamic organisation working for the propagation of the Quran and Sunnah throughout the globe" and that it was established in 1981.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot visited the tailor’s family and told reporters that he wanted the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to file the charge sheet in a fast-track court as soon as possible, so that the culprits are brought to justice.
