A total of 32 police officers including the Inspector General and Superintendent of Police of Udaipur have been transferred by the state government.
The action comes in the wake of the beheading of Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor by profession who was hacked to death by two persons inside his tailoring shop in broad daylight.
The Udaipur Police has come under strong criticism for not providing security to Kanhaiya Lal after he complained of threats over a social media post in support of suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma.
Meanwhile, on Thursday night, the two accused Riaz Bukhari and Ghouse Mohammad who were arrested from Bhim in the Rajsamand district were brought to Ajmer's high-security jail. The duo had sparked outrage in the country after posting a video on social media boasting about the "beheading". They also threatened Prime Minister Narendra Modi's life as well.
In the video Riyaz was seen attacking 47-year-old Kanhaiya Lal with a sharp-edged weapon while Ghouse, recorded the crime on his mobile phone.
Kanhaiya Lal was cremated on Wednesday in Udaipur in the presence of a large number of people who raised slogans demanding capital punishment for the accused. His last rites were performed amidst heavy police security.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday took over the investigation of the case.
