NEW DELHI: A day after the brutal killing of a tailor in Rajasthan’s Udaipur, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday filed a case against the two accused, who were arrested by the Rajasthan Police.

The New Indian reported on Tuesday that a team of the anti-terror probe agency had left for the Udaipur to look at the gruesome act of the murder and filming of the entire sequence.

The NIA source said that the way in which assailants prepared the video and also uploaded it on social media to create terror in society by brandishing their blood-soaked weapons, the agency has taken the matter seriously.
