Earlier today, the Bhagwa clothes that were worn by Ashfaq and Moinuddin, the radical Islamists who murdered Hindu leader Kamlesh Tiwari were recovered from a hotel room in Lucknow. The two are still absconding and the Uttar Pradesh police have tracked their location upto Gaziabad and the hunt to nab the culprits is on. Now, CCTV footage of Ashfaq and Moinuddin checking into the Lucknow hotel has emerged.
In the CCTV video, one can clearly see the two killers of Kamlesh Tiwari checking into the Lucknow hote from where the blood stained Bhagwa clothes have been recovered today.
When the hotel register was checked by the police, the following names were used to rent the room.
1. Shiekh Ashfaq Hussain (Son of Zakir Hussain)
2. Pathan Moinuddin Ahmed.
They were found to be from Surat, Gujarat by the field unit inspecting the hotel and the room.
In another CCTV footage that has emerged, one can see that Moinuddin and Ashfaq have changed into their Bhagwa clothes and are leaving the hotel to commit the brutal murder of Kamlesh Tiwari.
On 18th October 2019, Hindu leader Kamlesh Tiwari was brutally murdered for his 2015 comments where he had allegedly insulted Prophet Muhammad. 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.
Uttar Pradesh DGP had also confirmed that Maulana Anwar-ul-Haq and Mohammed Mufti Naeem Kazmi have been arrested and are being interrogated for their role in the murder.
The ones arrested have reportedly admitted that they killed Kamlesh Tiwari over his remarks against Prophet Muhammad and the plan was being hatched for the past 2 months.
