On the instigation of Muslim Raza, 23-year-old Asif Hussain, who works at a spectacles shop, and 32-year-old Mohammad Mohsin, who runs a shop named 5 Star Chicken, also agreed to get involved in this conspiracy. The task of the murder was given to Mohammad Gaus and Riyaz Ansari. Instructions were given to keep the method of murder ‘Sar Tan Se Juda’.
The task of rece was given to Wasim Ali. It is also being told that based on Wasim’s information, the initial plan was to kill Kanhaiya Lal in his house, which was later changed to his shop.
19-year-old Mohammad Javed was entrusted with the work of spying on Kanhaiya Lal’s shop and its surroundings. Javed used to work at a bangle shop near Kanhaiya Lal’s shop. He continuously updated the killers about his routine.
Mohsin Khan (25) got the responsibility of arranging the weapon. Mohsin used to run a lathe machine (a machining tool that is used primarily for shaping metal). He had made special daggers for this murder.
Farhad Mohammad, the owner of the chicken shop, took the responsibility of ensuring that the daggers were not visible to anyone till the time of the murder. He had kept the dagger hidden in his shop till the time of the murder.
Before beheading Kanhaiyalal, Riyaz and Gaus had seen the web series of Ertujul Ghazi, famous in Islamic countries, including Turkey.
Karachi-based Salman Attari and Abu Ibrahim have also been accused in this chargesheet.
Earlier on February 10, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) district president Sohail Khan in a case against PFI in Delhi.
According to sources, after the Kanhaiyalal murder case in Udaipur, the NIA had called Sohail Khan twice to Jaipur for questioning. He is also accused of giving provocative speeches and raising hateful slogans. It was revealed that Sohail is close to Gaus Mohammad, the main accused in the Kanhaiyalal murder case.
Earlier last year, the NIA team also came to Udaipur during the action on PFI by the Modi Government. But Sohail fled from the house as soon as he got information about the NIA team reaching his house.
