One more person was arrested on Friday in connection with the killing of Praveen Nettar in Dakshina Kannada district that happened earlier this week.

 

Earlier, two persons had been apprehended by the police in relation to the case.

"We have decided to hand over the case to the NIA. It will be communicated to the home department. Since it is an inter-state issue (Karnataka-Kerala), we decided to hand over the matter to the NIA," Bommai told reporters in Bengaluru.
