Shocking details of brutality have emerged from the post mortem report of Hindu activist Kamlesh Tiwari.
The Hindu Samaj Party leader was murdered in Lucknow on 18 October when the assailants came to meet him on the pretext of working for his outfit. He was murdered at his home in Naka Hindola area in Lucknow.
Reportedly, the assailants stabbled him 15 times in the upper body between jaws and the chest. His body also bore two deep cut marks at the neck, pointing to attempts to slip his throat. The stab wounds were within 10 cm of each another.
The attackers also shot him afterwards to make sure he dies. The bullet was fired in Tiwari’s face, reflecting deep hatred on the part of assailants.
