A day after BJP worker Praveen Nettaru was hacked to death by three unidentified persons at Nettaru village in Sullia taluk of Dakshina Kannada district, the saffron party found itself at the receiving end with its foot soldiers venting their ire against the party for its “inability to protect them” despite the party being in power in the state.

While the party workers who attended the funeral heckled the party’s state chief Nalin Kumar Kateel and ministers and MLAs who accompanied him, there were also reports of party workers resorting to mass resignation as a mark of protest.

Meanwhile, the mortal remains of the victim were laid to rest at his native Netturu after thousands of people paid their last respects. The body was taken in a procession from Puttur to his native village.

Nettar was a 31-year-old Zilla BJP Yuva Morcha committee member who lived in the Dakshina Kannada District in Karnataka. Praveen Nettar operated a chicken shop at Peruvaje Cross on Bellare village, close to Puttur named Akshay Chicken Shop.

After the incident, the city was in a state of distress as protests erupted and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) declared a bandh in some taluks to denounce the killing.

Nettar was fatally stabbed on his way home late on after closing the Akshay Poultry Farm shop, according to the police. He attempted to flee after being attacked and ran but fell after being struck in the head. Locals called the police right away, who responded and found Nettar dead.

Section 144 was implemented in the Puttur area due to the protest, and security personnel have been stationed in Bellare village.

The districts of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada have increased security. Additional forces have been deployed to ensure law and order.

Members of the BJP Yuva Morcha staged a sit-in in front of the hospital shortly after the incident, and the VHP has requested a bandh on Wednesday against the murder in the district’s Kadba, Sulia, and Puttur taluks.

What happened to Praveen Nettaru?

Praveen Nettaru, a Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha member, was hacked to death on July 26 by unknown assailants. Several Hindu organisations had taken to the streets to protest against the brutal murder, calling for bandh in various parts of Karnataka. After this incident, outraged BJP Yuva Morcha members started to furnish mass resignations.

There is a massive protest in southern parts of Karnataka after Praveen Nettaru’s murder. Protests have broken out in Bellare and Sullia, and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has called for a bandh. Hundreds of people escorted Praveen Nettaru’s dead body as it was taken to his home on July 27 in the morning.

The deputy commissioner of police, Mangaluru, remarked that the situation is being thoroughly probed. He said, “I spoke to the family regarding the autopsy and the funeral. We will forward the family’s requests to the government.”

According to police, 15 persons have been held for interrogation, and six teams have been formed to find the murderers. Three squads have been sent to Hassan, Madikeri, and the adjacent state of Kerala. Hindu activists and BJP workers surrounded BJP state party president Nalin Kumar Kateel’s car and heckled him as they protested Praveen Nettaru’s murder, demanding answers from senior party leaders.

The Chief Minister of Karnataka, after the murder, said, “Govt will form a commando force with special training, intelligence, ammunition, resources to go after anti-national & terror groups conspiring to disrupt the peace & stir communal tensions in the state”.

What happened after Praveen’s death?

It is being reported that the assailants who murdered Praveen were riding a bike with a Kerala number plate. The CCTV footage from the neighbouring areas has been collected and the government has vowed to find the murderers soon.

As the angst of Hindu activists and BJP workers spills onto the streets after Praveen being the latest in a string of Hindu murders, there are two theories that have emerged in the murder case, that put Islamists smack in the middle of the storm.

The first theory that is being investigated by the authorities is if Praveen Nettaru’s murder was connected to the support he extended to Nupur Sharma and his posts that spoke against the murder of Kanhaiya Lal, who was beheaded by Islamists (for supporting Nupur Sharma). Praveen had also questioned the Congress government in Rajasthan over the beheading of Kanhaiya Lal.

In the Facebook post on June 29, Nettaru wrote about Kanhaiya Lal’s murder and his killers’ threat to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Questioning Congress leader Ramya Divya Spandana and others, he wrote in Kannada, “Where are you when a poor tailor was beheaded for supporting nationalist sentiments, and their next target is Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Where are you? Did your voice die because of burning? This death has taken place in a state that is ruled by the Congress. Don’t you show mercy to a poor tailor’s life.”
