The mother of Kamlesh Tiwari, the pioneer of an ideological group in Uttar Pradesh who was killed at his home in Lucknow on Friday, has affirmed he was killed by a nearby government official over a land question. His child, Satyam Tiwari, has said he doesn’t “trust anybody” and needs the counter dread National Investigation Agency to test the case.
“Nobody asked me what I feel, who I think. He (neighborhood lawmaker) got my child slaughtered. He is a land mafia. We had a disagreement regarding a sanctuary land,” Kamlesh Tiwari’s mom, Kusum, told correspondents outside her home.
At the point when correspondents asked Uttar Pradesh Police boss OP Singh about Kusum Tiwari’s charges at a question and answer session, Mr Singh declined to remark.
“We need the National Investigation Agency to test the case. We don’t confide in anybody. My dad was slaughtered in spite of the fact that he had security watches. By what method can we confide in the organization at that point?” Satyam Tiwari said.
Kamlesh Tiwari, 43, was a pioneer of the Hindu Samaj Party. His throat was cut and he was shot on numerous occasions by a gathering at his home in Lucknow.
Kamlesh Tiwari had been furnished with outfitted security – two heavy armament specialists and a watchman – by a nearby police headquarters. Upon the arrival of his homicide, the heavy weapons specialists were missing. The police said the gatekeeper halted the suspects at the door and just permitted them through subsequent to checking with Mr Tiwari.
“I don’t have the foggiest idea whether the men captured killed my dad or in the event that another person did and blameless individuals are being encircled. In the event that these are the real offenders and the police have video proof, the NIA should assume control over the test. On the off chance that they test and this (the captures) is demonstrated, we will be fulfilled. We don’t have confidence in this organization,” Satyam Tiwari said.
for the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari, the UP Police chief Mr Singh said today. Three were arrested in Gujarat in a joint operation between the police of the two states. The two others are Muslim clerics from western UP’s Bijnor district. They were named in a First Information Report (FIR) filed by Kamlesh Tiwari’s wife. Two more accused, those believed to have carried out the attack, are on the run.
The men arrested in Gujarat have been identified as Maulana Mohsin Sheikh, 24, Rasheed Ahmed Pathan, 23, and Faizan, 21. The clerics are Maluana Anwar-Ul Haq and Mufti Naeem Kazmin, according to news agency ANI.
Police believe Rasheed Pathan was the mastermind, while Faizan bought a box of sweets the killers used to gain entry into Mr Tiwari’s house.
“We were confident we would solve the case in 24 hours and we have done so. Based on clues we formed small teams and fanned out to UP and elsewhere. From the beginning we had a hunch this was related to Gujarat,” the police officer said today, after CCTV footage indicated the box was from a confectionery in Gujarat’s Surat.
“We found a sweets box at the incident spot and we found many clues in it. I spoke to the Gujarat DGP and we sent our team there. There was strong coordination between the Gujarat police and us,” he said. “Two other accused who carried out the attack in Lucknow… Trying to arrest them soonest.”
OP Singh said investigations have ruled out any terror angle and that the main focus of the killing was a defamatory comment Mr Tiwari allegedly made about Prophet Mohammad in 2015. The police said that in 2016, one of the clerics named in the FIR had placed a bounty of Rs. 51 lakh on Kamlesh Tiwari’s life over that alleged remark.
