In the latest development in Udaipur beheading case, two accused Riyaz Akhtari, Ghouse Mohammad were on Thursday sent to judicial custody till July 13.

Thousands of people took out a march in Udaipur and shopkeepers downed shutters in Jaipur on Thursday, protesting over the tailor's recent murder by men who said they were avenging an insult to Islam.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot visited the tailor's family and told reporters outside the house that he wanted to 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.

Kanhaiya Lal was killed Tuesday afternoon by two cleaver-wielding men, who posted a grisly video of the crime online claiming responsibility for the "beheading".

CM Gehlot spoke to the family members and relatives of Kanhaiya Lal at their home in Udaipur's sector 14.

He was accompanied by state Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra, Revenue Minister Ramlal Jat and DGP M L Lather. Asked by reporters about the "failure" of police to provide security to Kanhaiya Lal despite his complaint, the CM Ashok Gehlot said this will become clear during the NIA investigation.

"The National Investigation Agency (NIA) should take up this case in a fast-track court. The charge sheet should be filed as soon as possible so that punishment can be awarded," he said.
