Election Pincodes: Dharwad BJP bastion murder turns political
May 08, 2024 12:06 pm

Hubballi and Dharwad citizens should vote for the BJP based on election history.
Hubballi has posters on power poles, bus stations, and billboards. They become sharper and more numerous, occupying almost every lamp post near Bidnal, a southeastern residential colony. Format modifications are minor, but they all have one thing: Photo of 23-year-old Neha Hiremath. They all shout “Justice for Neha.”
First-year computer application Master's student Neha Hiremath was walking toward the college gates of the BV Bhoomaraddi campus of KLE Technological University at 4.30pm on April 18. Her mother was waiting to pick her up. Fayaz Khondunaik, a 23-year-old former classmate who dropped out, assaulted the girl on the way. Khondunaik stabbed Hiremath six times as CCTV footage shocked society. Later that day, he was apprehended after fleeing. Hiremath died after being transported to the hospital.
