BJP Youth Leader Murder: Two Muslim men in connection with brutal murder of BJP youth leader Praveen Nettaru in Karnataka have been arrested.
BJP youth leader Praveen Nettaru, a BJP worker, was attacked with lethal weapons by unidentified persons on a bike in Bellare, Dakshina Kannada, late Tuesday evening.
Earlier Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai called on for an emergency press conference amid tensions over the death of the BJP youth wing leader Pravin Nettaru.
Speaking to media, Bommai said, “We planned to celebrate the completion of a year of our government’s formation on July 28 – ‘Janotsava’ at Doddaballapura, but are now cancelling the event. I’ll instead address a press conference tomorrow.”
Notably Karnataka government event at Vidhana Soudha has also been cancelled.
“Action ordered. As the incident took place close to Kerala border, Karnataka Police is in touch with neighbouring Kerala Police. I have received complete information from our Director General of Police regarding the murder. The accused will be arrested soon and severely punished,” he said.
His supporters have been doing massive protests in several parts of Karnataka after the murder as members of the BJP youth wing are saying that the party’s state government has failed to protect them.
