Was Amravati local murdered for post supporting Nupur Sharma?

Sanket, who was on another scooter, said the perpetrators fled immediately while his father was admitted to a nearby hospital where he died during treatment.

Exactly a week before the murder of tailor Kanhaiyalal Teli in Rajasthan's Udaipur, Umesh Prahladrao Kolhe, a 54-year-old chemist, was killed in Maharashtra’s Amravati district on June 21.

The Indian Express reported that investigators now believe Kolhe was killed allegedly in retaliation for a social media post supporting now sacked BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma's comments.

Kolhe's son, Sanket, who was accompanying him at the time of the murder told the police that the incident took place at around 10:30 in the night.

Sanket said, two men on a motorcycle suddenly came in front of Kolhe’s scooter and one of them stabbed him on the left side of his neck with a knife.

Sanket, who was on another scooter, said the perpetrators fled immediately while Kolhe was admitted to a nearby hospital where he died during treatment.
