Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], February 23: Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra wrote a letter to the Director-General and Inspector General (DG&IG) of police Praveen Sood on Wednesday seeking a detailed report within a week in connection with the murder of Bajrang Dal activist Harsha in Shivamogga.

Did cops take any action against these accused who had a criminal background in the last five years within the two police station limits? I need a detailed report within a week." He further said, "There are allegations that police helped anti-social elements operate in the city."
Harsha was allegedly murdered on Sunday night in Shivamogga. Security was tightened in the city following the incident.
