Asaduddin Owaisi demands arrest of Nupur Sharma after Udaipur Killing


AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday demanded the arrest of Nupur Sharma, a day after a man was beheaded in Rajasthan's Udaipur for supporting the former BJP spokesperson, who was expelled by her party earlier this month for controversial remarks on Prophet Mohammad. The Hyderabad MP also slammed the Rajasthan Police over its failure to prevent the killing of Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor by profession.

“I strongly condemn the Udaipur incident…We hope the Rajasthan govt takes strict action. Had the police been more alert, this wouldn't have happened... Radicalisation is spreading... Nupur Sharma should be arrested; mere suspension was not enough,” said Owaisi in a press briefing in Bhopal.
