After public outcry, Siddaramaiah govt reappoints murdered shopkeeper Praveen Nettaru's wife to job

Bengaluru/IBNS/UNI: After a huge public outcry, the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government in Karnataka has clarified that the wife of murdered shopkeeper Praveen Nettaru, Nutan Kumari, will be reappointed.

"It is a natural process for temporary employees to be terminated when a new government comes. It is not just Praveen Nettaru's wife, some 150 contractual workers have been terminated," Siddaramaiah said in a statement.

"Nutan Kumari will be reinstated on humanitarian grounds considering it a special case," he said.

Siddaramaiah also clarified that there was no government interference in Nutan Kumari losing her contractual employment.

On July 26 last year, Nettaru was hacked to death by three people who came in a vehicle outside his chicken shop off the Puttur-Sullia Road at Bellare in Mangaluru.

During the investigation, the state police found out the role of PFI, and the matter was handed over to the NIA following an order issued by the Counter Terrorism and Counter Radicalisation division of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Nettaru was killed in full public view with lethal weapons to create terror among the people at large, especially among members of a particular community.

The banned outfit PFI formed secret teams called 'Service Teams' or 'Killer Squads' to carry out killings of its 'perceived enemies' and targets as part of its agenda to create terror, communal hatred, and unrest in society and to further its agenda of establishing Islamic rule in India by 2047.

After assuming power, the Congress party withdrew the temporary appointments made in the government services by the previous BJP government.

This order cost Nutan's job of rendering her services in Mangaluru's Deputy Commissioner Office.

Her job was contractual and was appointed in the office of former Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai in the Dakshina Kannada district’s Mangaluru.

On Sept 22 last year, the BJP government issued her appointment letter.
