Karnataka Congress Leader’s Daughter Stabbed To Death On Campus By Ex-Student For Rejecting His Advances

The daughter of Karnataka Congress leader Niranjan Hiremath was stabbed to death with a knife on her campus by a former student after she allegedly rejected his advances.

The victim, Neha Hiremath, was a first-year Master of Computer Applications (MCA) student at KLE Technological University in Hubballi, Karnataka.

According to police, the victim had known her attacker, Fayaz, who also attended the same college but later dropped out, as per an NDTV report.

Fayaz fled from the scene after committing the crime and was subsequently arrested by the police.

“The accused had fled, but we arrested him in under 90 minutes. Other students have told us that Neha and the accused knew each other and had studied together. We will know more once the accused’s interrogation is done,” Hubballi Dharwad Police Commissioner Renuka Sukumar said.

According to The Indian Express, Fayaz, a resident of Savadatti in Belagavi district, is the son of government school teachers. Six months ago, he had stopped attending college after failing an examination. He was also Neha’s classmate.

The incident, which occurred around 5 pm on Thursday, was captured on CCTV. In the footage, Neha, seen walking backward, engages in a brief conversation with Fayaz until he violently approaches her and begins stabbing her repeatedly.

Following the attack, Neha was rushed to a hospital but was declared brought dead. Her body has been transferred to the Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) Hospital.

Neha’s father, Niranjan Hiremath, serves as the Congress councillor of the Hubballi Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC).
