Right-wing groups in Udupi have backed the family’s charges of ‘love jihad’. Vishwa Hindu Parishad has planned to hold a protest in Kundapur on May 31.

Shilpa Devadiga was working in a garment shop in Kundapur and during this time, Aziz came in contact with her and promised that he would marry her. Later, Aziz started blackmailing Shilpa after having physical relationship with her.
