Writer Yogesh Master, who had received several threats from right-wing groups, claimed the body of the man, found in Belagavi district, resembled a man who met him on “five occasions”. Speaking to The Hindu , Mr. Yogesh, said; “The man resembles the one who visited my house near Jnanabharathi University campus.” Mr. Master, whose novel Dhundi had created a furore among Hindu outfits in 2013, said: “Two youngsters were trying to approach me over the last six months. The first time, a duo on a bike came in the guise of handing over an invitation. While one person spoke to me, the other kept the bike ready. The youngster talking to me seemed abnormal and they left in a hurry after spotting a constable. After a month, they came again to hand over a book. The same youngster was sweating profusely. Three months ago, when I found the two roaming around my house, I asked my students to keep a watch. When one students tried to strike a conversation, they fled,” he added.
