Amravati murder: Independent Lok Sabha Member of Parliament Navneet Rana, along with her husband MLA Ravi Rana met the family of chemist Umesh Kolhe, who was killed in Maharashtra's Amravati for supporting suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma. Kolhe's murder was related to social media posts supporting Sharma, police said on Saturday, even as the case was handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

The killing in Amravati has similarities to tailor Kanhaiya Lal's beheading in Rajasthan's Udaipur, as he was also killed for supporting Nupur Sharma. In the Udaipur case, it has been revealed that 2 police constables, Babu Singh and Virendra Singh and 2 civilians, Prahlad Singh and Shakti Singh, were the reason behind the accused Riyaz Akhtari, and Ghaus Mohammad's arrest.
