Amid the ongoing tensions following the death of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Yuva Morcha worker Praveen Nettaru in Karnataka, his mother on Wednesday sought a death penalty for the culprits.

She also mentioned that after his son's death, they have no one to look after them. "I'm not feeling well. His father is also a heart patient. Culprits should be punished, whoever did this must be hanged," said Nettaru's mother, as quoted by news agency ANI.

The aggrieved mother further added, "He was our only son and planned to build a home for us. Now, who'll build it?"

Meanwhile, his wife Nutana, mentioned that she was not present when her husband was closing his shop on the day when he was hacked to death. "I don't know why they killed him. Every day, I was there with him when he used to close his shop and come back home but yesterday I was not there. If I would've been there, this wouldn't have happened," she said.

Earlier, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, while speaking about the same, said, "Praveen was killed in Mangaluru on Tuesday. Orders have been issued for stringent action against the culprits. Karnataka police officers are in constant touch with their Kerala counterparts to nab the killers."

He also announced the cancellation of the "Janotsava convention", an event organised to mark the first anniversary of his government on Thursday.
