A week after the heinous murder of tailor Kanhiya Lal, life is getting back to normal in Rajasthan's Udaipur. The government relaxed the curfew for 12 hours on Monday and internet services were also restored after five days.

In the meantime, on the input of the National Investigative Agency( NIA), the Rajasthan Police detained four more suspects late Sunday night.

A curfew was imposed in Udaipur last week after the beheading incident of Kahiya Lal.

The curfew was first relaxed for four hours on Saturday (July 3) and 10 hours on Sunday. Further looking at the peaceful situation in the city, the administration has decided to relax the curfew from 8 am to 8 pm on Monday.

As the curfew was relaxed, markets were opened and witnessed a huge crowd as people went out to procure the essentials.

"The situation is getting normal in the city and now our focus is to maintain the law and order. I appeal to people to maintain peace and not get instigated by rumours," said Dinesh MN, Additional DG of police, who was camping there after the incident.

Internet services were also resumed in the city after five days. The services were temporarily suspended following the incident to stop the spread of rumours.

Four more detained:

In the meantime, the Rajasthan police have detained four more suspects in the case. They were detained from a religious place at Khangipeer on Sunday late night on the inputs from the NIA, who is investigating the case.

The four suspects have been identified as Abdul Razak, Vasim Attari, Akhtar Raza and Riyasat Husain.

As per the reports, two of the suspects had sent the main accused Ghouse Mohammad to Pakistan as was claimed by the Rajasthan police.

Leaders reaching Kanhaiya Lal's family:

The leaders are reaching out to the victim's family to pay condolences. Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat met with the family on Monday morning and blamed the state government for this murder after meeting family members. "The tragic incident is the result of the negligence of Rajasthan police and Rajasthan CM should focus on its police rather than to advise NIA," he said.
