NEW DELHI: BJP national spokesperson Gaurav Bhatia, speaking on the murder of Neha Hiremath in Hubballi at a press conference on Monday, said that now, the deceased’s father, who is a Congress corporator, doesn’t trust Karnataka government.

Gaurav Bhatia said, “This is important to tell that the deceased’s father was a Congress corporator. And today, her father himself is saying that I don’t have trust in the Karnataka government that does appeasement politics”.

Condemning the incident, Bhatia compared the killing of Neha Hiremath to that of a jungle raj and said, “We saw a few days back that our sister, Neha Hiremath, in Karnataka’s Hubballi was brutally stabbed to death. The Hubballi incident was heart-wrenching. The entire country came together and said that this victim’s family should be given justice”.

On Sunday, BJP MP and candidate from Kalaburagi Lok Sabha seat, Umesh G Jadhav, condemned the murder and criticised Congress for politicising the matter. “This incident should not just be condemned by society but the entire 140 crore people. It’s quite unfortunate that some Karnataka Congress leaders are trying to give it some colour… A Congress corporator said that the party is attempting to give a different colour and hurting the soul of the deceased. Yesterday, in Kalaburagi, a protest was held and we sat on the road for 3-4 hours in order to condemn this incident”, Jadhav said.

The 24-year-old Neha Hiramath was stabbed to death in the college campus in Hubballi. Daughter of Congress Corporator Niranjan Hiremath, Neha succumbed to multiple stab wounds inflicted by Fayaz, a former friend and classmate, who has since been arrested.

Meanwhile, Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar on Monday said that his government has no objection to a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the Hubballi murder case, but, he added that his government will deal with the case in its own way.

The remarks came after the BJP demanded a CBI probe into the murder of the daughter of the Congress councillor  who was stabbed to death on the BVB College campus last week. BJP has alleged that police are trying to ‘divert’ the case.

“Let them do whatever they want to do, we have no objection to what they want to do. Karnataka government will deal with this case in its own way, there is no question of it”, Shivakumar said.

Niranjan Hiremath, the father of the murdered girl in Hubballi has demanded a CBI investigation into the incident. He also demanded that the police commissioner in charge of the case should be transferred for alleged “negligence”. (ANI)
