One out of the five accused who was arrested in connection with the suicide of a 20-year-old girl in Chikmagalur, has been identified as the president of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) District Yuva Morcha, Anil.
On January 6, blaming moral policing, a 20-year-old woman hanged herself in Chikmagalur.
In her suicide note, she named five men, who harassed her and her mother by accusing the victim of roaming with a Muslim boy, thereby creating issues of love jihad.
The other four accused are still absconding.
"On 6 January, a 20-year-old woman committed suicide. In her suicide note, she wrote that a group of five harassed her and her mother by alleging that she goes out with a Muslim boy. One person has been arrested," said Superintendent of Police, Chikmagalur.
A case has been registered under 306 (Abetment to suicide) of the IPC.
