Harsha, Eshwarappa, who claimed Muslim anti-social forces were responsible for the activist’s death, told reporters on Monday, “I’m really upset by the murder of a Bajrang Dal activist… Now I’m off to Shivamogga to assess the situation. “‘Goondaism’ will not be tolerated.”

Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister, stated that police have information on the offenders. “They’ll be apprehended as quickly as possible.” He stated, “I have asked the police authorities in Shivamogga to prevent any untoward incident.”

“He has already broken the Indian Flag Code,” DK Shivakumar, the Karnataka Congress chairman, said in response to Eshwarappa’s claims. A case against him must be filed, and he must be fired… Harsha’s assassination had nothing to do with the hijab controversy. The event was the product of personal animosity between two factions… the police must conduct a comprehensive investigation.”

Over the event, former chief minister Siddaramaiah demanded the resignation of home minister Araga Jnanendra. “The murder took place in Shivamogga district, where the home minister, Eshwarappa, and Yediyurappa are from,” he claimed. He went on to say, “I demand the resignation of the home minister…”

On Monday, Prathap Simha, the BJP’s MP for Mysuru-Kodagu, slammed the state government, calling it “shameful” that a “Hindu” party worker was assassinated by the party’s own administration.

Shobha Karandlaje, the Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare, wrote to Bommai demanding that the investigation be handed over to the NIA.
