Islamabad, Jun 29 (PTI) Pakistan's Foreign Office on Wednesday rejected reported insinuation in India to link the accused in the brutal killing of a tailor in Udaipur to a Karachi-based Ismalist organisation.

Two men, identified as Riaz Akhtari and Ghouse Mohammad, allegedly hacked Kanhaiya Lal to death with a cleaver at his shop in Udaipur on Tuesday and posted videos online saying they are avenging an insult to Islam.

One of the two prime accused has links with the Karachi-based Ismalist organisation Dawat-e-Islami and had visited Karachi in 2014, Director General of Police (DGP) of Rajasthan M L Lather told reporters on Wednesday.
