Bengaluru/IBNS: A massive slugfest between the incumbent Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) started after a ruling party corporator's daughter was murdered in the Hubballi city of Karnataka, media reports said.

Neha Hiremath, 23, was stabbed seven times by a former student- named Fayaz- of the same college in Hubballi.

Police suspect the first-year student of Master of Computer Applications was killed because she had rejected Fayaz's advances.

The accused has reportedly claimed during an interrogation that he had a relationship with Neha and she was ignoring him of late.

The matter got political with the BJP claiming a deterioration of law and order in the state while the ruling party highlighted the personal reason.

BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla posted on X, "Shocking state of affairs in Karnataka. When daughter of Congress is not safe from Fayaz who is? Broad daylight murder , terror attack at Rameshwaram cafe.. Dalits attacked , Hindus chanting Jai Shri Ram attacked, actress faces attack.. many such incidents And we see father of Neha say one thing but CM,HM doing Votebank politics & giving cover fire to “Fayaz” mindset !

"Why such soft approach & clean chit before investigations? So many incidents of murders & law & order issues have taken place in last 24 hours.. Karnataka has seen the worst government - no water; no law & order…only appeasement From Bengal to Bengaluru - INDI alliance means votebank ki suraksha not mahila suraksha."

Rebutting charges, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah called the murder was caused due to "personal reasons".

Siddaramaiah said, "Whichever murder happened is due to personal reasons. The law and order situation is very good in Karnataka, It is our duty to maintain law and order and we are doing it..."
