Bengaluru, Feb 16: Karnataka government on Tuesday decided to reopen schools across the state for students of class 6 to 8 on February 22. However, schools in Bengaluru Urban and Kerala borders will only be open for 8th standard students.

The Department of Public Instructions announced this decision on Tuesday after holding a meeting with the state Covid-19 technical advisory committee.

Considering that several nursing students who returned from Kerala have tested positive for Covid-19, the Department has decided not to open classes below 8 in both Bengaluru Urban and districts bordering Kerala.

However, the Department will have another round of meeting with the technical advisory committee on February 24 or 25 to discuss reopening of schools for class 1 to 5.

Speaking to reporters, State Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar said, "We will wait for the health department survey on the students returned from Kerala tested positive for Covid-19 before taking any decision further."

However, it is compulsory for students returning from Kerala or bordering districts to submit Covid-19 negative report to attend schools.

The attendance is not mandatory and students can opt for online or offline classes and must submit a consent letter from parents.

Udupi, Feb 15: Police late on Sunday arrested six persons, including the prime accused, who murdered a person for objecting to his illicit relationship with a married woman in Karnaka's Udupi district.

Police named the person as Gauthan, the prime accused, who worked at Malpe fisheries harbour.

The others include Manoj Bhandary, 30; Dhanush, 27; Chethan Kumar, 24; Tilak Raj, 36; all from Malpe and Siddharth, 23 from Kadike.

The incident was reported around 8.15pm and police had secured Gautham, 27, and the other accused within hours of the incident.

The victim is Naveen Naik, 43, resident of Hosuru near Brahmavar.
Gautham, police said, had an illicit relationship with a woman, who was neighbour of Naveen.

Gautham often visited the woman at her house in Hosuru and Naveen Naik objected to it.

Taking umbrage at this, Gautham had threatened Naveen not to interfere in his personal affairs.

Police said the woman, a mother of one child, was not in good terms with her husband and was not legally separated too.

Gautham despite this stoked the relationship and this irked Naveen Naik.

On Sunday night, when Naveen’s son Nithin had gone out to attend a programme at a friend’s house with his mother and younger brother Mahesh, Gautham with other five persons went to Naveen's house and attacked him with lethal weapons.

Naveen, who received injuries to his head, collapsed on the spot and died. 

Police arrested Gautham and five others within three hours after the incident was reported in Brahmavar police station.

Police who have charged the accused persons under sections 447 and 302 of the IPC, have seized an SUV that the accused used in this crime, N Vishnuvardhan, superintendent of police said.
