20-Yr-Old Stabbed To Death In Karnataka's Hubbali For Rejecting Love Proposal; Locals Stage Protest

Hubbali (Karnataka) [India]: A group of people staged a protest in Karnataka's Hubbali after a 20-year-old woman was stabbed to death at her residence by a man who was reportedly in love with her on Wednesday morning.

The woman, identified as Anjali, had reportedly rejected his marriage proposal.
The accused, identified as Girish alias Vishwa, allegedly threatened the victim of killing her in the same manner as a 21-year-old Hubballi college student who was stabbed to death by her former classmate. The victim had approached the police and complained about the threats, but to no avail.

The incident occurred on Wednesday morning. Reportedly, the accused barged into the victim's house early on Wednesday, stabbed her multiple times, and then fled from the spot. Soon after the incident came to light, it sparked anger among locals, prompting them to launch a protest and demand action against the accused.

Hubbali Commissioner of Police, Renuka Sukumar, said that two police officials were suspended on charges of dereliction of their duties in the case when the victim approached them to file a complaint that the accused had threatened her to kill like Neha Hiremath -- the 21-year-old Hubballi college student who was allegedly stabbed to death by her former classmate.

"Bendigeri Police Station Inspector Chandrappa Chickkodi and women police constable Rekha Havreddi were suspended on charges of dereliction of duty. The victim Anjali had been to Bendigeri Police station to complain against the accused for threatening her of killing like Neha Hiremath. Instead of taking action police sent her back. Based on the complaint by the victim's sisters, a probe was conducted and action was taken," the Police Commissioner said.

She also mentioned that their (Anjali family) demand was legal action against the accused and they were seeking help from the district administration. "We have formed two special teams to investigate the matter, and the accused will be arrested soon," she added.

Earlier in April, Neha Hiremath (21) was stabbed to death allegedly by her former classmate, Fayaz Khodunaik, at the campus of KLE Technological University in Hubballi Dharwad, where she was a first-year MCA student.

The police arrested Fayaz within hours of the incident and produced him before a magistrate, who sent him to 14-day judicial custody. The CID took Fayaz's custody and was later brought to Hubballi from Dharwad.
