The SP of Dakshina Kannada told the media that two people have been arrested in the killing of BJP's Yuva Morcha worker in Bellare in the district. The SP further said that they have questioned 15 people until now in the case.

On Thursday, Home Minister Araga Jnanendra had said that investigations were underway and that they suspect members of the Popular Front of India (PFI) and Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI).

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai announced late on Wednesday night that he is cancelling the first-year anniversary celebrations of his government.
