Amravati man killed for allegedly supporting Nupur Sharma; Amit Shah hands over probe to NIA

Home Minister Amit Shah

Home Minister Amit Shah has ordered the NIA (National Investigative Agency) to take over the probe of the murder of an Amravati chemist who was allegedly killed for supporting BJP leader Nupur Sharma’s controversial remarks on Prophet Muhammad.

Shah’s office tweeted: “MHA has handed over the investigation of the case relating to the barbaric killing of Shri Umesh Kolhe in Amravati Maharashtra on 21st June to NIA. The conspiracy behind the killing, involvement of organisations and international linkages would be thoroughly investigated.”

54-year-old Kolhe was murdered on June 21, a week before Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor from Udaipur, was killed for supporting Sharma’s views. Kolhe’s throat was slit while he was going home from his shop.

The police, so far, have arrested five persons: Mudassir Ahmed Shaikh Ibrahim (22), Shahrukh Pathan Khan (23), Abdul Taufeeq Tasleem (24), Shoeb Khan (29), and Ateef Rashid. All five accused except Adbul, have no previous offences or crime records. Abdul, in the past, was booked for skirmish at a mosque.

The judicial custody of the five accused was extended till July 5 by a local court on Saturday.
