Days after the cold-blooded daylight murder of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) Haryana President Nafe Singh Rathee, at least two accused have been arrested in connection with the matter.

He further threatened, "This will be the outcome for anyone who joins hands with my enemy. If anybody supports my enemies, I will support their enemies and all the 50 bullets will wait to take away that person's life."

Case handed over to CBI
