Speaking to reporters here on October 7, Saturday,  he urged the BJP against politicising murders  in a sensitive place like Ullal and giving cmmunal colours  to such incidents.

Stating that the Congress too condemned the murder of Zubair, he at the same time added that the BJP had no moral right to demand Khader’s resignation.

On the BJP allegation that the murder took place due to drug mafia, he  urged the Home Minister to send a special team to launch a crackdown on the mafia.

Ivan also appealed to the government to provide compensation to the family of Zubair.
