Karnataka: RSS worker stabbed to death in Shivmogga, panic spread

Shivmogga: Unidentified people have stabbed to death a RSS worker in Karnataka's Shivmogga area, triggering panic and prompting authorities to impose Section 144 in the region.

The deceased has been identified as Harsha, who was reportedly chased and killed on Sunday in Bharathi Colony.

Section 144 has been clamped in the town and holiday has been declared for schools and colleges, reports UNI.

The police are trying to ascertain if this incident is connected with the hijab controversy.

Following the incident, Home Minister Araga Jnanendra visited the family of the deceased Bajrang Dal worker and consoled them.

"A group of four-five youth murdered RSS worker. But this has to be confirmed. I just have the information," he told reporters here.

The police have already indentified who are behind this murder, but will talk about it later, Jnanendra said, adding that the killers will be arrested soon.

Following the murder, a large number of people gathered at the Megan Hospital to protest against the incident.

At least four vehicles were torched by miscreants and the police had to resort to lathi-charge on the protesters.
