After the murder of a tailor at his shop in Udaipur was caught on camera by his assailants, a top Rajasthani cop pleaded with the public to not watch the video. The media was also ordered not to air the film by Hawa Singh Ghumaria, the ADG for Law and Order in Rajasthan, due to its extremely offensive tone.
Using the video evidence as a basis, two people have been detained.
When two men entered his shop this afternoon in a particularly busy bazaar in Udaipur, Kanhaiya Lal was there. They assaulted him with knives a short while afterwards. The murder was caught on camera, and the assailants later gloated over how the tailor had been killed. Social media sites posted the videos.
On social media, the individual had shown his support for Nupur Sharma, a former BJP spokeswoman whose derogatory comments about the Prophet Mohammed sparked an international uproar and sizable demonstrations in India.
600 more police officers have been deployed to Udaipur, a famous tourist destination, and the Internet has been shut down as a result of the mounting tension.
Ashok Gehlot, the chief minister, has pleaded for peace.
