Following the assassination of a Bajrang Dal worker in Shivamogga, Karnataka, prohibitive orders were issued on Monday.

Harsha, a 26-year-old right-wing activist, was allegedly slain late Sunday near Shivamogga. Section 144 of the CrPC has been imposed in the region, according to Shivamogga deputy commissioner Selvamani R.

“In general, the situation is calm. According to news agency ANI, “local police and the RAF have been sent to ensure law and order.”

Following the postmortem, the deceased’s body was brought to his home under police guard. At the scene, a huge number of right-wing employees could be spotted.

During the investigation into the tragedy, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai stated that only a few clues had been gathered.

As a precaution, Araga Jnanendra, the city’s home minister, announced that schools and colleges within the city borders will be closed for two days. The minister visited with the victim’s relatives and promised fast action in the case.

Jnanendra met with senior police and district officers as well. “We have a lead, but I can’t say much because the inquiry is still ongoing.” The good news is that we know who did it and will catch them shortly. There were maybe four to five people there. Through this case, we will send a strong message.”

The youth was killed by “Muslim goondas,” according to Rural Development Minister KS Eshwarappa, a BJP official from Shivamogga. “Right now, I’m heading to Shivamogga to assess the situation.” “‘Goondaism’ will not be tolerated,” he declared.

Siddaramaiah, a Congress leader and former chief minister, has urged that the home minister resign over the event. “I strongly oppose this occurrence. It happened in the district where the home minister and the chief minister (Basavaraj Bommai) are from. The perpetrator should be put to death by a noose. “I demand the resignation of the home minister,” he stated.

Meanwhile, ANI reports that miscreants set fire to many vehicles in the Seegehatti region of town. A firefighting operation was underway at the time.

After a debate emerged over a ban on Muslim girls wearing hijab inside educational facilities, the southern state has been in the middle of a storm for the past several days. Youth belonging to right-wing fringe organisations and those extending their support to Muslim females demanding their right to wear the hijab staged violent rallies in many locations across the state.

The murder, however, was not linked to the hijab controversy, according to authorities.
