Nettaru was hacked to death on July 26, 2022. The case is now being investigated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
The initial probe had indicated that Nettaru's murder was revenge killing. More than 10 accused, including three assailants, have been arrested.
Hindu activists ran a social media campaign urging the former Bommai government to provide a government job Nutan.
The BJP had also built a house for Nettaru's family.
