Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath met the kin of slain former Hindu Mahasabha leader Kamlesh Tiwari in Lucknow today and assured them of justice. Following the meeting, Tiwari’s son Satyam Tiwari, said that Yogi Adityanath has assured that the culprits will be brought to justice. The security of the family members will also be increased, he added.
He said that the culprits have been identified and that they will soon be arrested. On getting the NIA involved in investigation, Kamlesh Tiwari’s son said that UP CM has assured him that proper and speedy investigation will be carried out and that the culprits will be caught. He added that if after a few days there is no progress, they would demand an NIA investigation.
On Saturday, a day after Tiwari’s brutal murder, Satyam had said that he has no faith in UP administration and demanded an NIA investigation. He further added that their only demand is that the culprits are punished and that their security is increased.
Tiwari, a former Hindu Mahasabha leader, was assassinated at his Lucknow office by one Ashfaq and one Moinuddin who are still absconding and on the run. The Uttar Pradesh police and Gujarat ATS sprung into action to blow the lid off a Surat-based Jihadi group that was indoctrinated by one of the accused who planned the murder, Maulana Mohsin Sheikh. Two other conspirators, Rashid Pathan and Faizan have been arrested. The Gujarat ATS has declared the names of the murderers as Moinuddin and Ashfaq, though the UP police have not commented on the names of the murderers who are still absconding.
