Shivamogga district tense after miscreants threaten slain Bajrang Dal activist’s family
Tension prevailed in Karnataka‘s Shivamogga district on Tuesday after a group of miscreants threatened the family members of slain Bajrang Dal activist Harsha, who was hacked to death earlier this year. The police have made tight security arrangements throughout the district to avoid any untoward situation.
According to the police, the incident took place late Monday night. The miscreants also assaulted a person, identified as Prakash, and escaped the spot after locals gathered.
Prakash, who is currently hospitalized, told the police that a total of nine miscreants, all wearing masks, came on three bikes and they were carrying machetes and swords. Superintendent of Police Mithun visited the spot and instructed to monitor the situation.
Harsha, the 23-year-old Bajrang Dal activist was hacked to death by a gang of miscreants on February 20 amid the height of the hijab crisis triggering concerns about the law and order situation. Harsha was rushed to the McGann Hospital where he succumbed to injuries.
Union Minister Shobha Karandlaje had requested the Karnataka CM to hand over the probe into Harsha’s death to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

The searches were conducted at 13 locations in Shivamogga district at the premises of the accused and suspects in the case.
