Daijiworld Media Network - Kundapur (SP)

Kundapur, Jun 8: On Monday June 7, the police arrested two more accused relating to the murder of Uday Ganiga from Yadamoge on Saturday June 5.

The arrested persons have been identified as Balachandra Bhat, an influential BJP leader who has been accused of extending tacit support for the murder, and Rajesh Bhat.

Yadamoge gram panchayat president Pranesh Yadiyal, has been accused of killing Uday when he was standing on the road in front of his house at about 8 pm on June 5 at Hosabal, Yadamoge, by knocking him down with the car and then attacking him with a stick.

Police at the spot of the incident

It is said that bitterness between Ganiga and Yadiyal arose over the issue of digging of a borewell and the WhatsApp status Uday posted relating to lockdown rules enforcement. Differences gave rise to hatred in the mind of Yadiyal. Uday's wife, Jyoti Ganiga, had said in her complaint filed in Shankaranarayana police station that Pranesh had murdered her husband along with Rajesh and others. She also said that Balachandra had supported the murder.

There is suspicion that more people were present at the spot of murder. The police are putting together information and evidence to check this fact.

District superintendent of police N Vishnuvardhan, visited the spot and collected information. Kundapur deputy superintendent of police Srikanth, police circle inspector Gopikrishna who happens to be the investigating officer of the case, sub-inspector Sridhar Naik and others were present.

    Dear Razi, i strong condemn your comments for using name Community. We should respect all communities and should not blame any community for wrong doing by some one. We will see bad elements in every community. Try to respect others and they only you will be respected by others. I dont agree with your comments and condemn in strong words. May God bless you with right way of thinking.

    No body comments at the religion of the accused or their upbringing. It is only when the accused is from minority their religion will be blamed.

    this murder is a clear indication that no one can point fingers at BJP administration.. Victim Uday was pointing out the corruption and high handedness of the BJP goonda Yadiyal who gobbled up the Covid funds.. just imagine to what extent this third rated bacchali party people go? just 18 people covid positive but he got the village sealed down just to kill Udaya... God save this country from the clutches of these morons..who are ready to kill their rivals. so people beware do not talk alone
