But, the family members never accepted the proposal. Later, the girl was engaged with Suresh Naika from Didupe. Learning about this, Anand, over phone, had threatened Suresh, to drop the marriage proposal. When Suresh refused to do so, on April 29, 2017, another accused Praveen Naika had invited Suresh to come Ujire town to seek information about Ganga Kalyan Yojana. When Suresh did so, Praveen along with other accused Vinay, Prakash, Lokesh and Nagaraj kidnapped Suresh in an Omni van from the spot. After kidnapping Suresh, the accused threatened him to drop the marriage proposal with the girl. As Suresh refused to act as per their demand, the accused strangled him to death using a rope. Later, his dead body was burnt iat Aveki under Dharmasthala police station limits. The then Belthangady circle inspector Nagesh Kadri and sub inspector of Dharmasthala police station Koragappa Naika, had filed a charge sheet before the court,  after holding a detailed probe.

    No. That's letting them out easy. Not 1 lakh but their entire earning inthe jail should go to deceaseds mother. This should make then squirm. And they be made aware when they get out they got nothing and their crime (or rather it's attomenent) actually paid, but not them but to the deceased's family.

    We should not get too attached to anyone unless that person also feels the same towards us. That too having married, such feeling should not be with us. Anand Naika is a fool and in his foolishness, he dragged his friends to be partners in crime. How any one of the other five did not get sense of the end result of murder, is a surprise. You get served what you deserve, that is Karma.
