Mangaluru (Karnataka) [India], July 8 (ANI): Following the death of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker Sharath, who succumbed to his injuries after being stabbed, the party on Saturday demanded an impartial probe into the matter and a strict action against the perpetrators.

RSS spokesperson Rajesh Parmar said Sharath’s murder was the 12th such killing in Karnataka in the last four years.

“This increasing number of murders in Karnataka and other southern states is shocking and we want the Karnataka Government to take a strict and immediate action so that the culprit is punished, law and order is maintained and a peaceful environment is provided for the social activists in Karnataka,” he said.

Reminiscing the murder of another RSS worker Rudresh in Bengaluru earlier, Parmar said the probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) revealed many things.

“Even in the case of Rudresh in Bengaluru, we demanded an NIA probe. They revealed that there are so many networks related to the killings of so many RSS workers in Karnataka as well as southern states of India,” he said.

RSS worker Sharath was stabbed on July 4 by unidentified assailants at Bantwal in Dakshina Kannada district.

The victim succumbed to his injuries last evening. (ANI)
