The incident has triggered communal tension in the Rajasthan, and seeing the situation, the Rajasthan government has imposed a Curfew. The perpetrators, after mercilessly murdering the victim shot a video and declared that they had “beheaded" the man and then issued a threat to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
