Karnataka to recommend handing over Praveen Nettaru’s murder probe to NIA

Bangalore, 29/7: The Karnataka government on Friday announced that it would recommend handing over the probe into the killing of BJP Yuva Morcha office-bearer Praveen Nettaru in Puttur in Dakshina Kannada to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).


Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, who chaired a high-level meeting with senior police officials of the State, announced that the Home Department of the State will write to the Centre to handover the investigation. Since the murder case involves organised crime and has inter-state links, the government has decided to transfer the probe to NIA, Mr Bommai told presspersons. “The State Home department will communicate to the Centre to handover the probe to NIA”, he said.
