A 23-year-old was stabbed to death by her former classmate inside her college campus in Karnataka's Hubballi on Thursday. The deceased, identified as Neha, 23, was the daughter of Congress Corporator Niranjan Hiremath and was studying MCA at BVB College in Hubbali. 

Narrating about the incident, the police said the incident happened on Thursday, and the accused, identified as Fayaz, 23, an MCA dropout, has already been arrested. The police said that both Neha and Fayaz were batchmates during their BCA course and were known to each other. 

While a case of murder has already been registered and the investigation is underway, police, elaborating on the details of the crime, said Fayaz went inside the college campus with a knife and stabbed Neha five-six times as she allegedly rejected his proposal.

 "During interrogation, he (Fayaz) claimed that the two of them had been in a relationship and that she had suddenly started avoiding him. It needs to be corroborated and verified, but he was arrested immediately," a senior police officer said.

Meanwhile, Neha's father, Hiremath, speaking about the incident, said stringent punishment should be given to the accused, as only then will his daughter's soul rest in peace. Hiremath demanded hanging for the accused. 

"He (the accused) was an old student, and he had proposed to my daughter, but she rejected his proposal. She did not like him, and she usually stayed away from all this. She refused him, saying they both belonged to different castes and that she did not wish to have any relationship with him. Out of anger, he stabbed my daughter," he told PTI videos.
