    Hubballi Murder Case: BJP President JP Nadda Meets Victim's Family

The Congress corporator’s daughter Neha Hiremathn (23) was stabbed to death by her college friend on April 18. Neha Hiremath’s parents expressed grief for the loss as the BJP leaders assured them justice. JP Nadda and Pralhad Joshi along with the family members paid respect to the late Neha Hiremath as they showered flowers on her picture. "This is a shocking incident and we condemn it... This murder is an attack on humanity. CM Siddaramaiah's & Home Minister G Parameshwara's statements on this incident are objectionable. Their statements dilute the investigation. The people of Karnataka will not spare the current govt for appeasement politics...State govt should hand over the case to CBI if State Police is incapable of carrying out a probe. Hiremath has also demanded a CBI inquiry into the incident as he has less faith in the State police," said JP Nadda.
