Bajrang Dal activist death: ‘Muslim goons have killed him,’ alleges Karnataka minister Eshwarappa

Prime News, National, Karnataka, Crime, Politics, Bengaluru, February 21:- The blame game in the political circle has started over Bajrang Dal activist death in Bharathi Colony, the town, around 250 km from Bengaluru. A 23-year-old Bajrang Dal activist was allegedly stabbed to death. Harsha was allegedly stabbed to death by unknown assailants Sunday night at the Ravi Varma lane in Bharathi Colony.

Launching a direct attack on a particular community, Karnataka’s Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister K S Eshwarappa said, “Muslims goons have killed him. It has never happened that in Shivamogga Muslims wagged their tail. But because D K Shivakumar recently said the national flag was removed and saffron flag was hoisted, his provocative statement has emboldened Muslim goons. This goondagiri won’t be tolerated,” Eshwarappa said.

Eshwarappa also accused Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee chief D K Shivakumar of instigating the killing with comments he had made at the height of the hijab protests.

After the incident, some supporters of the deceased man came out on the streets and vented their anger. Television footage showed them pelting stones but it was not clear what their target was. (MR, Inputs: Agencies)
