MANGALURU/BENGALURU: As BJP workers continued to resign and protest across Karnataka over lack of protection for Hindu activists, the Dakshina Kannada police on Thursday arrested two men in connection with the murder of party’s youth wing worker Praveen Nettaru.
Dakshina Kannada superintendent of police Rishikesh Sonawane identified the two arrested suspects as Zakir (29) from Savanoor and Shafiq (27) from Bellare. Nettaru (32) was hacked to death by unidentified motorbike-borne assailants in Bellare on Tuesday night.
Both the arrested are said to be members of Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) and Popular Front of India (PFI). Police said they’re yet to establish the motive. Additional director general of police (law & order) Alok Kumar said 21 people from various organisations have been detained and are being interrogated.
CM Basavaraj Bommai, who cancelled events to mark his government’s one year and BJP’s three years in office, rushed to Mangaluru on Thursday evening and met Nettaru’s family in Bellare. He handed over a compensation cheque of Rs 25 lakh to Nettaru’s wife Nuthana. The party’ state unit also announced a compensation of Rs 25 lakh and a house. Among others who gave compensation were BY Vijayendra (Rs 5 lakh), CN Ashwath Narayan (Rs 10 lakh), K Gopalaiah (Rs 5 lakh) and MP Renukacharya (Rs 1 lakh).
Before leaving Bengaluru, Bommai said, “If the situation demands, the Yogi model of governance in UP will be adopted in Karnataka to deal with anti-national and communal elements trying to create unrest in the state.”
Clamour for the ‘Yogi model’ – which refers to stringent measures, including the use of bulldozers to demolish houses of alleged anti-social elements, reportedly taken at the behest of UP CM Yogi Adityanath to control alleged anti-national activities in the state – has grown in Karnataka following the murder of Nettaru.
Mangaluru city police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said some being questioned are accused in serious cases. Zakir has a case against him for an offence under IPC Section 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons). “He is the main accused in Nettaru murder case,” he said.
Police gathered CCTV footage near Nettaru’s chicken shop, which shows a person moving around suspiciously. The footage shows the suspect waiting on the roadside on a bike for about 30 minutes before riding to the shop just before the murder.
Accusing the government of failing to protect them, BJP functionaries at the cadre level from Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Tumakuru and Chikkamagaluru continued to send in resignations to party brass on Thursday. A bandh was observed in Koppa and Chikkamagaluru towns in Chikkamagaluru district. In Bengaluru, several Hindu activists protested in front of Town Hall against the BJP government. Party functionaries deployed to persuade those resigning to change their decision met with little success.
Union minister Shobha Karandlaje has written to Union home minister Amit Shah, requesting that the probe into Nettaru’s murder be handed over to the NIA.
