We are writing to share the extremely shocking news that NAPM Karnataka Convenor A.D Babu has been killed.
Mr Babu was on his way to attend a NAPM organised meeting of the anti- liquor campaign at Ramnagaram, along with Sr. Celia and couple of other colleagues when a group of people stopped the vehicle at Mayanagram (some kms before the meeting venue) and attacked him with knives and swords. He was killed on the spot, in front of his comrades. It is believed that the strong liquor mafia in Karnataka is behind this gruesome murder.
We are yet to have details as news is just coming in. The NAPM convenors meeting is being held at Wardha. A team of HR activists and NAPM friends have rushed to Mayanagram...
Mr. A D Babu was among the most active comrades who emerged within the leadership of NAPM and was made a convener of the state unit recently.
We call upon all sections of the people to condemn murder of A D Babu and demand immediate action by the state government...
Seeking your Solidarity & Support against the violence.
