Mangaluru, Mar 20: Nearly three months after Dakshina Kannada BJP MP Nalin Kumar Kateel threatened to set the entire district on fire if the police failed to arrest the accused in Karthik Raj murder case, a local businessman has announced Rs 1 lakh cash award to the police, if they catch the culprits within a month.

The reward was announced by Prakash Shetty, businessman and a resident of Assaigoli, during a day-long protest organised by the Hindutva groups on Sunday in front of Konaje police station to urge police to speed up the investigation.

He said it has been five months since Karthik Raj was brutally murdered just a few meters away from the jurisdictional police station. However, police have not made any breakthrough so.

“We suspect vested interests trying to divert investigation. If the police arrest the real culprits in a month, I will give them a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh," he said.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Kateel criticised the state government over killing of innocent Hindus and delays in arrests. He said that many Hindu youths have been assaulted and killed in Ullal area in the recent past.

Former MLA I M Jayaram Shetty added that if anyone throws stones at mosque, police arrest the culprits within hours but it is not the same with crimes against Hindus.

Parents of Karthik Raj urged police to give them justice. Earlier in the day, a rally was held from Ganesh Mahal, the spot where Karthik was killed, to Konaje police station. More than 400 persons joined the rally.

Karthik, son of BJP leader Umesh Pajir, was assaulted by unidentified miscreants near Ganesh Mahal, while he was jogging on October 23, 2016. Later, he succumbed to head injuries at a private hospital the same day.

This agitation is an eye wash only to create sympathy and vote bank for BJP. I am sure that killers are same as in case of Praveen Pujary. Police should investigate and catch the real killers and not innocents.

If they are honest in their investigation... most of the real criminals were caught was cheddi group members.. In this case too.. I feel it will be cheddi group member but later it will be said he was mentally ill.

Killer has to be punished no doubt.. but in India there are several thousands of cases where either the accused are not caught or even when they are caught but not punished.

but why paint this case with communal brush?

who knows their own men would have killed him like how they killed Praveen Poojary

We feel pity for all innocents including kartik hoping he is also an innocent.
1Lakh award give to public also if they help to catch the criminals.

70% of the population are Hindus, then they should not cry.

If so what will happen for those who are below quarter(25%) of you.
- Dalits,
- Jains,
- Christians,
- Sikhs
- Muslims
