The incident happened around 1:30 pm on Tuesday when the group had left for Dargah in Gadak. When they were on their way, their car collided with a northwest Karnataka RTC bus which was approaching from the opposite direction.

The dead bodies of Muhammad Kunji and Ayesha were shifted by the locals to Hanagal government hospital for post-mortem while their relatives returned to Hubballi.

Kunji and his family fought for several years, demanding justice for their son.

Abid’s murder by RSS in 2014

Zainul Abid, 24, a resident of Talangare Kunnil and SDPI activist, was attacked by a gang with sharp weapons at his family shop in Chakkar Bazaar of Kasaragod when he was about to close the shop and leave for home on December 22, 2014.

Police arrested three in the case from Munnippady, all alleged of hatching a conspiracy to eliminate Abid.

They were charged under provisions of IPC section 120-B (conspiracy) read with sec 302 (culpable homicide), and produced before the Kasaragod Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Court, which remanded them to two weeks’ custody.

The SDPI (Social Democratic Party of India) has already raised its fingers towards RSS involvement in the murder. SDPI national president A Saeed had said in a statement: “The murder is the latest evidence of the Sangh terror developing in the state after BJP national president Amit Shah’s visit to the state.”
