Father of Man Accused of Killing Congress Councillor's Daughter Apologizes, Demands Maximum Punishment

Fayaz, a 23-year-old man, allegedly killed Neha Hiremath, the daughter of a Congress councillor, inside a college campus in Hubballi, Karnataka. The incident occurred on April 18, 2024, at BVB College.

Fayaz's father, Baba Saheb Subani, a school teacher, apologized to Neha's family and demanded maximum punishment for his son. "I am shocked and shattered by my son's act," Subani said. He revealed that Neha's family had contacted him 8 months ago to inform him that Fayaz was troubling Neha, but he and his wife Mumtaz had been living separately for 6 years, and Fayaz stayed with his mother.

Subani admitted that Fayaz and Neha were in a love relationship, and Fayaz had told him he wanted to marry Neha, but he had refused. Neha's father said Fayaz was pestering his daughter for a love relationship, which she had refused, and despite warnings to Fayaz's parents, he killed his daughter.

Why this matters: The incident has triggered widespread public outrage and protests in Karnataka, with the ruling Congress party and opposition BJP engaging in a political slugfest over the issue. The case highlights the ongoing problem of violence against women and the need for stronger measures to ensure their safety and security.

Fayaz's mother, Mamtaz, also a teacher, apologized to Neha's family and the people of Karnataka, saying her son's act was completely wrong and that he should be given strict punishment as per the law. Members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) staged massive protests in Bengaluru and Hubballi, demanding justice for Neha. The victim's family has demanded that the accused be hanged to death.
