This comes as the communal tension still prevails across the country after a Hindhu man was brutally beheaded in Rajasthan’s Udaipur by two Islamist radicals over a social media post supporting Nupur Sharma.

The now-suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma made controversial remarks on Prophet Muhammed during a heated television debate. She was later suspended by the party but the remark snowballed into a massive controversy.

Meanwhile, both the killers in the Udaipur murder case have been arrested along with other accused. The case is being invested by the NIA.
