BANGALORE: The Praveen Nettaru murder case will now be turned over to the National Investigation Agency, the Karnataka administration under Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai determined on Friday (NIA).
Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, Bommai announced that his administration had chosen to turn over the investigation involving the murder of BJP member Nettaru to the NIA. He said that further steps are being taken by the state government to maintain strong law and order in all areas. "Top police officials would meet at a high-level today to discuss implementing strict measures in the coastal region, including Dakshina Kannada and Udupi. The meeting would examine many topics, including vigil at the 55 highways that connect the Kerala border. We will talk about making some difficult decisions, "he added.
Bommai said that he came to know about the murder of another young person while visiting Nettaru's house. The police are examining three such cases in all. "The three murder cases have all been treated seriously by the state authorities. Each and every person's life is significant to us and it is being looked into. Such actions shouldn't take place. There is also political incitement from anti-social forces.
These situations have different aspects. We are controlling all of this with strict methods "Bommai said..
Speaking further about the other slayings in the state, he said, "The murderers of Masood have been detained. In the other two cases, the search goes on for the perpetrators. It is not a simple murder. There are nefarious organisations behind the incidents. These outfits would be crushed. People will come to know about the measures in the next few days".
