BJP under fire after party worker’s murder in Karnataka

New Delhi, 28/7: Violence erupted in Bellare town of the communally sensitive Dakshina Kannada district on Wednesday as the ruling BJP faced the ire of Hindu nationalists after a Yuva Morcha member was hacked to death on Tuesday night.



Police had to resort to lathicharge after protesters resorted to stone-pelting when the body of Praveen Nettaru was taken out in a procession from the Puttur government hospital to Bellare, where he was killed.


BJP cadres turned against their own government, accusing leaders of failing to keep Hindus safe. Activists heckled and almost attacked several BJP leaders who came to offer condolences to the grieving family.
