LIVE: Similarities in MM Kalburgi and Gauri Lankesh Murders, Says Karnataka Law Minister

Bengaluru Police say they have some good leads from Gauri Lankesh’s phone and have secured CCTV footage from her residence where the senior journalist was gunned down by unidentified assailants while entering the building on Tuesday evening. Three bullets were pumped into Lankesh, who was known for her strong stand against Right-wing ideology. The murder of Gauri Lankesh, which bears a striking resemblance to the murders of rationalists Narendra Dabholkar and MM Kalburgi, has triggered a blame game between the BJP and the Congress, which is in power in Karnataka.

Stay tuned for live updates:

Karnataka Home Ministry sources said they are close to crack Gauri Lankesh's murder case. Bengaluru journalist Gauri Lankesh, 55, had returned home in her car and was opening the gate when motorcycle-borne assailants fired at her indiscriminately, with two bullets hitting her in the chest and one on her forehead, police officials said. She died instantaneously.

She died instantaneously.

Smriti Irani condemns killing of Gauri Lankesh

Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani condemned the killing of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh in Bengaluru and hoped that there would be a speedy investigation and justice delivered.  The Kannada journalist-activist, known for her left- leaning outlook and forthright views on Hindutva politics, was shot dead by unidentified assailants at her residence last night.

"Condemn killing of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh. Hope speedy investigation is conducted and justice delivered. Condolences to the family," the minister said on Twitter.

Lankesh, 55, had returned home in her car and was opening the gate when motorcycle-borne assailants fired at her indiscriminately, with two bullets hitting her in the chest and one on her forehead, police officials said. She died instantaneously.

Gauri's brother confident that culprits will be arrested soon

Brother of slain senior journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh expressed confidence that the culprits will be traced soon with the help of concrete evidence from the CCTV footage and the journalist's mobile phone.

"The CCTV camera (in the premises) has captured the whole incident. I am very confident that the culprits will be caught soon," Indrajit Lankesh, Gauri's brother, and a filmmaker told reporters.

"In fact, her mobile phone also contains a lot of evidence and clues. The investigation is underway. I will provide details later in the day.," he said

"She wasn't just a close friend of me but of all those who respect secular values of this country. They can kill Gauri but they can't kill her task. They can kill Kalburgi but nobody can murder Kalburgi's task", says Vimala, Gauri Lankesh's friend

There is a conspiracy behind Gaur's death. There are similarities between Kalburgi and Gauri Lankesh's murder. It is really shocking. She was always committed to secular credentials. There must be some conspiracy behind this. It is a serious matter, we will take it up. We can't rule out, it comes out only after verification, says Karnataka Law Minister TB Jayachandra

The final rites of Gauri Lankesh will be performed later in the afternoon today after post mortem. Her brother Indrajit Lankesh said the body will be taken to Samsa Rangamandira where people can pay last respects to the senior journalist who was gunned down outside her home on Tuesday evening. Police, meanwhile, have secured the hard disk that contains the footage recorded by the CCTV cameras at the premises. Police have also said that they have some good leads from her phone as well.

Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy has drawn parallels between the murder of Gauri Lankesh and the killing of rationalists Narendra Dabholkar and MM Kalburgi, allegedly by fringe Hindu groups. Dabholkar was shot dead in August 2013, while Kalburgi was gunned down in August 2015. "Who is behind the incident, is it the Naxals or any other ideological fringe parties were behind the incident will be known only after investigation. It is very premature to hold anybody responsible for the incident," Reddy said. The state government has asked the Bengaluru police to get in touch with their Maharashtra counterparts who are investigating the murder of Dabholkar.

Terming Gauri Lankesh’s murder as shocking, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has said that three police teams have been constituted to probe the killing. Instructions have been issued to crack the case and bring the culprits to book at the earliest, he said. He said Gauri Lankesh had been instrumental in bringing Naxalites into the mainstream. "It's shocking news for me. No one who has faith in humanity will ever kill anyone. Gauri Lankesh was secular and helped government bring the Naxals back to the mainstream," said Siddaramaiah. He, however, wondered why she didn't tell the government about the threat to her life though she had met him many times.

Gauri Lankesh, 55, edited Kannada tabloid 'Gauri Lankesh Patrike' besides owning some other publications. Her murder bears eerie resemblance to the way rationalists Narendra Dabholkar and MM Kalburgi were murdered allegedly by fringe Right-wing groups. She was last year convicted in a defamation case filed by BJP MP Prahlad Joshi over a report published in her tabloid against some saffron party 

Hours after senior Kannada journalist Gauri Lankesh was shot dead by unidentified assailants at her home in Bengaluru, the city police have secured the CCTV footage from the premises. Gauri Lankesh, who was known for her strong stance against Right-wing ideology, was returning home in her car and was opening the gate when motorcycle-borne assailants fired at her, with two bullets hitting her in the chest and one on her forehead.
