Belagavi : The shocking Belagavi naked parade incident is now becoming a political event, as the state BJP has declared that it will hold protests throughout the state of Karnataka.

A five-member fact-finding committee has also been constituted by BJP President J.P. Nadda, with instructions to visit the village where the incident occurred on Saturday and provide a report.

State BJP President B.Y. Vijayendra made the following statement at a press conference: “A fact-finding committee will visit Belagavi on Saturday and submit a report on the incident.” The victim will be met by party MPs Aparajit Sarangi, Sunita Duggal, Ranjita Kohli, Locket Chaterjee, and Asha Lakda, national secretary of the BJP. The BJP is considering the matter carefully.

The incident took place on December 10 when the 42-year-old woman, a resident of Vantamuri village, was dragged outside her home and stripped naked. She was then paraded naked and tied to an electric pole and assaulted, allegedly because her son had eloped with a girl from the village.

The terror was reportedly unleashed on the boy’s mother by the family members of the girl.

Nadda, meanwhile, said that ever since since the Congress came to power in Karnataka, heinous crimes against women are taking place in the state.

Describing the incident as an unfortunate development, Vijayendra said, “CM Siddaramaiah has not met the victim. Barring Home Minister G. Parameshwara, no Congress leader has bothered to make a visit there. Even the Karnataka High Court has rapped the state government for it ‘laxity’ in this issue.”

Despite this, according to Vijayendra, the state government has not given the development much thought.

“The BJP is going to stage protests across the state condemning the Congress government on Saturday, in which women are going to take part in large numbers,” he stated.

Following the incident, the victim will receive Rs 50,000 from the Belagavi District Legal Authority and Rs 5 lakh from the Congress government.
