Udaipur murder: Congress’s Pawan Khera says 1 of main accused is ‘BJP member’

Hyderabad, India, July 02 (KMS): The Congress on Saturday said one of the main accused in the murder case of tailor Kanhaiya Lal, Riyaz Attari, is a “BJP member” and questioned the Centre on handing over the investigation to the National Investigation Agency.

Party’s media department head Pawan Khera addressing a press conference in Hyderabad said a very sensational disclosure had been made by a media group in connection with the Udaipur incident.

“It comes to the fore in the same disclosure that the main accused Riyaz Attari, used to often attend the programmes of powerful BJP leader and former home minister of the state, Gulab Chand Kataria,” he said.

Khera claimed that the pictures of the main accused, Riyaz Attari attending the meetings of the BJP Rajasthan’s minority unit have also surfaced and are out there for everyone to see.

“Through the posts of BJP leader Irshad Chainwala on Facebook on November 30, 2018, and Mohammad Tahir on February 3, 2019, October 27, 2019, August 10, 2021, November 28, 2019, and other posts, it is clear that Riyaz was not only close to BJP leaders, but was also an active member of the BJP,” Khera alleged.

Referring to the images, he questioned whether the Bharatiya Janata Party and its leaders were trying to create an atmosphere of religious frenzy in the whole country.

“Will Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah still remain silent on attempts by BJP leaders to spread religious frenzy,” he questioned.

He further questioned whether the Bharatiya Janata Party, through its spokespersons and leaders, was trying to take advantage of the situation by polarizing the whole country.

“The Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot welcomed the transfer of this case to the NIA, but on the arrival of new facts, the question is being raised whether the Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Center hastened to transfer the incident to the NIA due to these reasons,” he questioned further.

After the press conference also, Khera, in a tweet, said “The killer of Kanhaiya Lal, Riyaz Attari is a member of the BJP.”
