Womens stage massive rally demanding capital punishment for Neha’s murderer


BM Bureau : The brutal murder of a college girl inside the campus of a private college at Hubballi by her classmate has rocked the Hubballi Belagavi region. Many women groups in Belagavi on Monday took to the streets staging a huge rally demanding hanging of the youth who is in the judicial custody. Neha Hiremath, a 23-year-old Masters of Computer Applications (MCA) student, was stabbed to death by her former classmate Fayaz Khondunaik on the campus of BVB College in Hubballi on April 18. The attack was caught on CCTV footage. While Fayaz was arrested later, Neha’s death sparked a row between the BJP and Congress.

While protests are being held across Karnataka against the incident, various women organisations who had gathered in large number staged a mammoth protest rally. Demands were made that the the accused should be given capital punishment or else he should be handed over to the organizations. The lives of many young women like Neha Hiremath are in danger today, and the state government is not protecting women in the state, the protestors alleged.

The procession started from Dharamveer Sambhaji Chowk and halted at Channamma Chowk via College Road.  On this occasion, a petition was submitted to the government on behalf of various organizations through the district collector.

Meanwhile some groups have urged citizens not to politicise the issue amid the ongoing campaigning for the parliamentary elections. However, in the wake of the parliamentary elections the incident the BJP is trying to corner the Congress which is in a dilemma over this issue.
