The family of late journalist Gauri Lankesh, who was shot dead at her residence by few unidentified assailants on September 5, on Thursday urged the Karnataka Government and the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to find out and punish the killers as soon as possible.
Speaking to ANI News, Gauri Lankesh’s brother Indrajeet Lankesh said, “I would request the government and the SIT to find out killers as soon as possible. We are trying to search the reason behind Gauri’s murder. Everyday, there is a new angle in the investigation. But for now the motive behind her murder is important.”
Talking about Gauri’s achievements, her brother said we are proud that she was bestowed with an International award.
Resonating similar views, her sister Kavitha Lankesh said she hoped the nationwide protests in her support put pressure on the government to find out the truth.
“There were so many protests going across India. Hopefully, these protests put pressure on the government to find out the truth,” she added.
But After several months, Karnataka Congress Government has completely failed even to identify a clue on Lankesh’s Murder.
A Muslim Arms dealer named Tahir is already arrested by Bengaluru police under Gauri Lankesh Murder case.
Indrajeet now clearly attacks Karnataka Congress on doing appeasement politics over death of his sister by blaming BJP and RSS without any evidence. Here is what he said.
Home Minister & Siddaramaiah are just using this issue for political advantage. Investigation is happening only on a political angle. From day 1, K'taka govt is blaming RSS & BJP without any evidence & want it the same way now: Indrajit Lankesh on murder of sister Gauri Lankesh pic.twitter.com/sdbT3mBbV3
