Dear @narendramodi ji, are we heading towards civil war? Why not putting ban on such groups who are repeatedly killing innocents on the name of cow & Love Jihad ? pic.twitter.com/pqm9w7Fyis

Hindu terrorist caught in video killing says he will surrender.
Saying he is repeating what happened 25 years ago.
Will the media and govt act in the right way for this case.
Or culprit and sick mentality like these will again roam free in a good society? pic.twitter.com/CaWB0WkujL

Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria has ordered a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the case.
Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar said that interrogation of the accused is on and police is keeping an eye on the law and order situation.
Initially, Raigar made a video of his brutal act and it was uploaded on social media. The video went viral as the police were conducting their investigations.
The video shows the perpetrator hitting the man with an agricultural tool, and then pouring kerosene on his body and burning him alive. Raigar is seen warning that those indulging in ‘love jihad’ will meet the same fate.
In another video, which has also gone viral, Raigar is seen justifying the act as an endeavour to save a girl from ‘love jihad’.
Speaking to IANS, SP Manoj Kumar said the police received information about a semi-burnt body lying in Ragnagar in Rajsamand district.

Without delay, he along with ASP Manish Tripathi and DSP Rajendra Singh reached the location where they found a badly disfigured body. Immediately the forensics team and dog squad were summoned. The agricultural tool used for murder, the victim’s motorbike and his slippers were found at the crime scene.
Why doesn’t the BJP accuse Shahnawaz Hussain & Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, both married to Hindu girls of #LoveJihad ?
& what about Sushil Modi , who is married to Christian ?
Why is this hate being hoisted only on the common man ?
