After Neha Hiremath, another young woman in Hubballi stabbed to death by acquaintance

Just weeks after college student Neha Hiremath was stabbed to death by her former classmate — which led to a political slugfest with allegations of ‘love jihad’ and demands for a CBI probe — a 21-year-old woman was stabbed to death inside her house by an acquaintance on Wednesday.

Vishwa alias Girish Sawant, 23, knocked on the door of Anjali Ambigera’s residence at Veerapur Oni area, which falls within the jurisdiction of the Bendigeri police station limits here, at around 5.45 am. When she opened the door, Girish stabbed Anjali to death with a knife and fled the place, a senior police officer said, adding that her sister witnessed the brutal murder.

A case of murder under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the accused, Girish, police said, adding that teams have been formed to nab him. It appears that the murder of Anjali is not just similar to that of Neha, but the killer had allegedly threatened that she would face the college student’s fate, according to her sister, who accused the police of inaction when informed of the threat.
