Karnataka Government to probe multiple factors for increase in attacks on young women

The cold blooded murder of Anjali Ambiger has sent shockwaves in the state of Karnataka. The state was still recovering from the murder of Neha Hiremath, who was allegedly stabbed multiple times to death in her college in Hubbali on April 18. The opposition BJP has started targeting the Congress government in Karnataka alleging that the government is not able to handle the situation of law and order in the state.

Home Minister G Parameshwara on Friday said he was reviewing the lapses on part of the police and other factors which might have led to such repeated incidents in the same city.

The 22-year old, Anjali Ambiger was allegedly murdered by a 22-year-old Girish Sawanth in Hubballi on Wednesday after she allegedly rejected his marriage proposal. “I’m reviewing to find if there are any lapses on part of the officials or if there are any other factors or reasons. As repeatedly such incidents are taking place, we need to find what is the factor,” Parameshwara told reporters.

The Minister also added that he is sending an Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) to Hubballi, who will be in charge for looking into the incident and will be thereby submitting a report on the case. The BJP came down heavily on the congress government on Thursday over the murder of Anjali, accusing the government of having failed in maintaining the law and order situation. The opposition party also asked the Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to drop Parameshwara’s name from the Cabinet.

Meanwhile, a development in Anjali’s case has come to notice related to the arrest of the 22-year-old accused Girish Sawanth. Parameshwara has also added that strict punishment will be ensured to Sawanth in accordance with the law.
