Govt fully capable of handling Neha murder case: Dy CM Shivakumar


The demand by the BJP to hand over Neha Hiremath murder case in Hubballi to the CBI has sparked political tensions in Karnataka.

In response to this demand, Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar stated that the state government is fully capable of handling the case on its own.

“We don’t mind, let them handover. Let them do whatever they want. They are not eligible. Karnataka government will deal with it in its own way. There is no question of it,” said Shivakumar, dismissing the BJP’s demand, here on Monday.

The murder case in Hubbali has become a bone of contention between the ruling party and the opposition, with both sides holding firm on their positions. The BJP believes that the CBI should take over the investigation to ensure a fair and impartial probe, while the state government asserts its competence to handle the case independently.

Earlier, Niranjan Hiremath, a Congress Councillor of Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation, has expressed deep dissatisfaction with the ongoing investigation into his daughter’s murder on her college premises.

Speaking to the media, Hiremath stated, “I have provided the names of eight individuals openly involved in the incident. However, not a single arrest has been made so far. I am losing faith in the current investigation process.”

Expressing his frustration, Hiremath accused the local authorities of attempting to divert the case and demanded that the investigation be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) if the local police fail to make progress. “The police commissioner overseeing the case is a lady, yet she seems to be overlooking a girl’s murder,” he added. “I suspect she is working under some pressure.”

Further escalating his demands, Hiremath called for the immediate transfer of the police commissioner due to alleged negligence in handling the case. “I demand that the case should be given to CBI for an impartial and thorough investigation,” he emphasised.

The tragic incident has shaken the community, with Hiremath’s plea highlighting the growing concerns over the efficiency and transparency of the local police’s handling of sensitive cases.
