43-year-old Tiwari was assassinated at his residence based in Lucknow's Naka Hindola neighbourhood on Friday afternoon. The CCTV footage captured two alleged killers entering inside his office, clas in saffron and red kurta respectively. They were inside Tiwari's home for nearly 30 minutes and after they left, the security personnel found the deceased with his throat slit and several rounds of bullet fired.
The killed Hindu Samaj Party leader's son Satyam Tiwari, while speaking to news agency ANI, said the bereaved family has no faith in the administration and wants the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to take over the case.
"We want the NIA to probe the case. We do not trust anyone. My father was killed although he had security guards. How can we possibly trust the administration then?" he asked.
The five suspects who have been arrested have been identified as Maulana Mohsin Sheikh (24), Rasheed Ahmed Pathan (23) and Faizan (21) from Gujarat, and Mufti Naeem Kazmi and Imam Maulana Anwarul -- both of them were detained from Bijnor.
