Speaking about the motive behind the crime, Mr Singh said, "It is too early to comment on it as we are investigating the case."
On October 16, an RSS worker was hacked to death in Bengaluru, which led to massive protests by BJP and RSS workers in the state. Reacting to the incident, RSS Media Coordinator for Karnataka, Rajesh Padmar said the state government should take strong steps to stop such politically-motivated killings. He also demanded an immediate and impartial investigation.
"In the last two years, more than 10 RSS-VHP-BJP activists have been killed. It is a dangerous development in a democratic set-up," Mr Padmar said.
He also said that Srinivas Prasad was a soft-spoken person and has no criminal cases against him.
