The Chairperson said she has spoken to the city police commissioner and district collector and made it clear that every educational institution should take safety measures and also conduct workshops in colleges to educate both boys and girls about their future, cybercrime, social networking and their goals.

“If these things are implemented in schools and institutions, such incidents will definitely occur in the near future,” she said.

The alleged murder of Hubballi-Dharwad Municipal Corporation Congress councilor Niranjan Hiremath’s daughter on her college campus here on April 18 has led to widespread condemnation and protests.

The issue has turned into a political slugfest between the ruling Congress and the opposition BJP in Karnataka. While the ruling party has tried to portray it as an “incident with a personal angle”, the saffron party suspects a “love jihad” and says it points to the “deterioration of law and order” in the state.
