Platoons of Karnataka State Reserve Police, City Armed Reserve, Rapid Action Force and Central Industrial security Force have been deployed, police said.

BJP and RSS workers led by former Deputy Chief Minister R Ashoka and Members of Parliament Shobha Karandlaje and P C Mohan and others, marched from Shivajinagar towards Police Commissioner’s office, but were stopped midway.

Linking Rudresh’s murder to killing of BJP and RSS functionaries in different part of the country, Karandlaje said “there is a feeling that these killings are part of a planned conspiracy.”

Ashoka said the culprits should be nabbed first before they fled out of the city or state.

Home Minister G Parameshwara said, “Four to five teams have been formed to investigate. Police will do their job. A few persons have already been taken into the custody, inquiry is on.”

He said “Rudres happens to be an RSS worker, other than that, we are not aware of anything about him. We will get to know the exact reasons for his killing only after the investigation.”

Assuring BJP and RSS workers that police will conduct a fair investigation into the case, city Police Commissioner N S Megharikh said, “We will nab the culprits soon.”
