Congress behind Bajrang Dal worker Harsha’s killing, alleges BJP MLA

Renukacharya, a BJP MLA, accused the killing of 26-year-old Bajrang Dal activist Harsha in Shivamogga on Sunday on Karnataka Congress BK Hariprasad, chairman DK Shivakumar, and other Congress officials.

The assassination of a Bajrang Dal activist within Karnataka’s Shivamogga district has devolved into a big political brawl, with the ruling BJP with opposition parties trading accusations. The BJP seems to be split about whether the killing was connected to Karnataka’s current hijab controversy.

On Tuesday, tensions over the death of a Bajrang Dal leader in Shivamogga, Karnataka, heated up after Bharatiya Janata Party MLA MP Renukacharya accused the killing on the Congress.

On February 20 night, a Bajrang Dal worker, 26-year-old, was stabbed to death by an unidentified individual in Shivamogga, Karnataka. Harsha, a Bajrang Dal worker, was allegedly tracked down and killed last night in Shivamogga’s Bharati Colony. Three people have been arrested in association with the murder investigation. State BJP leaders and the Vishva Hindu Parishad slammed the murder and accused some Islamic groups of being involved. The administration has increased security in Shivamogga due to the incident, which has created a stressful environment in the region.

“Congress is behind the murder of Harsha. DK Shivakumar, BK Hariprasad, and other Congress leaders killed him. I urge the home minister to hand over the case to NIA,” Renukacharya, who is now the chief minister’s political secretary, told the news agency ANI.

Harsha, a 26-year-old man, was fatally stabbed late Sunday evening, and the BJP legislator from Honnali promised a 5 lakh settlement to his family.

Renukacharya’s accusations come just after KS Eshwarappa, a Karnataka minister, charged the opposition of inciting ‘Muslim gangs,’ prompting a harsh response from Congress.
