A police inspector and a woman head constable were suspended on charges of dereliction of duty over the murder of the young woman. The victim's family has alleged that they had complained to the police that the accused had threatened the victim with meeting the same fate as 23-year-old college student Neha Hiremath, who was stabbed to death by her former classmate at her college campus in Hubballi on April 18. They also alleged that the police did not take the complaint seriously.

Earlier in April, Neha Hiremath (21) was stabbed to death allegedly by her former classmate, Fayaz Khodunaik, at the campus of KLE Technological University in Hubballi Dharwad, where she was a first-year MCA student.

The police arrested Fayaz within hours of the incident and produced him before a magistrate, who sent him to 14-day judicial custody. The CID took Fayaz's custody and was later brought to Hubballi from Dharwad.
