Mysuru, December 10:- Hindu Janajagruti Samithi has urged the state government to hand over the murder cases of Hindu activists to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
“More than seven Hindu activists have been murdered in the state, but the government is continuing to be ignorant. Key accused in the murders, Abid Pasha and others are still roaming around freely. They have violated all the conditions of bail. They should be arrested immediately,” said national spokesperson of the organisation, Ramesh Shinde at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Saturday.
“The prominence given to the murder case of Gauri Lankesh is not given to that of other activists. Cases have been registered against 90 people including 18 innocents. More than Rs 3 crore has been spent on the investigation. The police failed even to identify the bike used by the murderers,” he alleged.
“Protection and financial support should be given to the family members of the murdered Hindu activists. Timber Atiq should be arrested. Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD) and Popular Front of India (PFI) organisations should be banned,” he added.
