   Date :20-Oct-2019
FIVE people have been detained including three in Gujarat’s Surat in connection with the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari, the President of a little-known Hindu outfit, with police saying on Saturday that the suspects were ‘radicalised’ and appeared to have targeted him for his inflammatory remarks made in 2015. “So far, there is no terror angle associated with this incident,” Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police DGP O P Singh said at a press conference here, a day after the Hindu Samaj Party chief was killed at his home in Lucknow’s Khurshed Bagh Among the arrested were Mohammed Mufti Naeem Kazmi and Imam Maulana Anwarul Haq, who were booked on murder charge after Tiwari’s wife named them in her police complaint alleging that the duo had announced a bounty of Rs 1.5 crore on his head in 2016. However, Tiwari’s mother Kusuma alleged that he was killed by a ‘local BJP leader’.
