BENGALURU: The Karnataka government has appointed Kushal Chouksey as Hubballi-Dharwad DCP (law and order) and an order to this effect was issued on Monday.

In a letter dated May 20, Secretary to the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms, Nagappa S Pareet, said, “Kushal Chouksey, IPS, Joint Director, Forensic Science Laboratory, Bengaluru is placed in the concurrent charge of the post of Deputy Commissioner of Police, Law & Order, Hubballi-Dharwad City with immediate effect and until further orders”.

Anjali Ambigera murder accused Girish a.k.a Vishwa in hospital after he jumped off a moving train.

The police have arrested one person, identified as Girish alias Vishwa, for the murder of Anjali. Hubbali Commissioner of Police Renuka Sukumar confirmed last Friday that Girish, who was on the run after stabbing the woman to death, was arrested last Thursday.

Earlier, Anjali, had been to Bendigeri police station to complain against the accused, but instead of taking action, the police sent her back. Renuka Sukumar said that the police launched a probe into the incident and took action against the police personnel based on the complaint by the victim’s sisters.

Anjali had reportedly rejected marriage proposal of Girish, who was in love with her. Girish had allegedly threatened to kill the victim in the same manner as 21-year-old Hubballi college student Neha Hiremath, who was stabbed to death by her former classmate on the BVB College premises.

Reportedly, Girish barged into Anjali’s house early on Wednesday, stabbed her multiple times, and then fled from the spot. Soon after the incident came to light, it sparked anger among locals, prompting them to launch a protest and demand action against the accused. (ANI)
