Praveen Nettaru’s wife’s appointment order withdrawn by Congress in Karnataka
As per sources, the newly appointed Congress government in Karnataka has withdrawn the temporary appointment order of slain BJP activist Praveen Kumar Nettaru’s wife from government services in Dakshina Kannada district.
Nettaru was hacked to death on July 26, 2022. The case is now being investigated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
Nutan Kumari, wife of Praveen Kumar Nettaru, was offered a Group C post on contract basis in the office of former chief minister Basavaraj Bommai. Now, the sitting Congress government has withdrawn the order.
Nutan Kumari had reported to duty and expressed before the former CM Bommai about her preference to work in Mangaluru. Following her request, she was given the post of an assistant in the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund section of the Deputy Commissioner’s office in Mangaluru.
The sources said that when governments change, temporary staff are generally asked to leave and no special consideration has been made for Nutan Kumari.
The initial probe into Nettaru’s murder indicated that it was revenge killing. More than 10 accused, including three assailants, have been arrested. Hindu activists ran a social media campaign urging the former Bommai government to provide a government job Nutan. The BJP had also built a house for Nettaru’s family.
