He was later taken into custody by the Rajasthan police in connection with the murders of two Muslim men from Rajasthan, Junaid and Nasir, in February.

Yadav had also made a video in late July over a religious procession in Haryana’s Nuh. A Brajmandal Jalabhishek Yatra was abandoned on July 31 after it led to clashes in Muslim-majority Nuh, violence that was prompted by comments made by Yadav and others.
