Sensational revelations and facts are surfacing from the investigation surrounding the murder of Hindu Samaj leader Kamlesh Tiwari. In recent developments, top police sources have told India TV that the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari was indeed a revenge killing. 

In 2015, Tiwari’s remarks about Prophet Mohammad sparked massive protests and also resulted in Kaliachak riots. We have deliberately chosen to not give life to the incident by repeating the words. 

In a press conference, UP DGP OP Singh said, "We are working in collaboration with the Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), till now no link with any terrorist organisation has been established. A joint team of UP and Gujarat Police detained 3 persons and is interrogating them. Their names are Maulana Mohsin Sheikh, Faizan, & Khurshid Ahmed Pathan. Two other accused were also detained but released later, they are being monitored."

"In the initial interrogation no criminal background of the three people, who have been detained, has been established yet. If needed, we will take them into remand, bring them to UP and question them," the DGP added. 

As per reports, another 2 suspects are still on the run. 

On Friday, Kamlesh Tiwari was shot dead in broad daylight at his office in Khurshid Bagh office. Saffron-clad men barged into his office carrying a box of sweets but instead pulled out a gun to open fire on Tiwari.
