“Girish had been harassing my sister Anjali for sometime now. He expressed his love to her but my sister declined. He even pressured my sister to go with him to Mysuru. He had also threatened her that she would meet the same fate as that of Neha Hiremath,” Anjali’s sister Yashodha told news agency PTI.

She also alleged that they had informed police about the threats, but there was no action. “They didn’t pursue it seriously and today see, my sister is dead,” she said.

Meanwhile, the police have not confirmed the motive behind the murder.

“The murder of a girl named Anjali has been reported within the jurisdiction near Veerpurra Oni Village. An assailant stabbed her to death this morning inside their house. We have registered the case and are currently investigating further to determine the motive behind this tragic incident, “said Gopal Byakod, SP Hubballi Dharwad.

Anjali’s family members and angry locals protested in Hubballi, demanding strict action against the accused. The crowd was dispersed after police assured them that justice would be delivered.

The police have formed a team to trace the accused and further investigation is underway.
