New Delhi: Riyaz Attari, the man who killed Udaipur tailor Kanhaiya Lal, was a BJP member, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera claimed at his press conference on Saturday morning.

In light of the “fresh evidence”, he also questioned the  decision of the Centre to hand over the investigation to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Khera backed his claim with old Facebook posts by Riyaz Attari where he introduced himself as Rajasthan BJP member.

He said that the Ashok Gehlot-led Rajasthan government had welcomed the order of the Centre to hand over the probe in the Udaipur killing to the NIA. “But now we wonder if the Centre ordered the NIA probe in a hurry to hide information about Riyaz Attari,” he said.

Attari and his accomplice Ghous Mohammad had released a video after killing Kanhaiya Lal. They claimed they killed him for insulting Islam. Kanhaiya had shared a post on social media in support of former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma who had made controversial comments about Prophet Mohammad.
