    The assailants entered Lal's shop in Dhan Mandi posing as customers. As the tailor took measurements Akhtari attacked him with a cleaver, nearly severing his neck. The other man shot the brutal murder with his mobile phone. The men fled from the scene and later uploaded this clip on social media.

    Curfew remained clamped in seven police station areas of Udaipur and mobile Internet services were suspended across all 33 districts of Rajasthan after two men - Gos Mohammad and Riyaz - entered tailor Kanhaiya Lal's shop at a crowded market in Udaipur and slit his throat with a cleaver, and filmed the incident. The attackers have been arrested.
    Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who was in Jodhpur, returned to Jaipur and will hold a meeting with officers to review the situation, official sources said. Leader of Opposition Gulab Chand Kataria demanded action against Udaipur's Superintendent of Police.
    "Suspension of one ASI is not enough. Action against the SP should be taken. It was his failure that the local police failed to ensure the security of Kanhaiya Lal despite a threat to his life," Kataria said. Prohibitory orders banning people from assembling were clamped across the state for a month and mobile internet services were suspended after the incident.
