  • Gauri Lankesh murder

With a city court having sent him to police custody, now as an accused in the Gauri murder case, Kumar will continue to be interrogated. It is said that he has connection with Hindu fringe groups and that he bore resemblance to the person caught on the CCTV, making trips around Gauri Lankesh's house.

"Yes, Praveen is a suspect in the case but we have not included his name in the FIR yet".

Bengaluru, Mar 9 (UNI) The Special Investigation Team (SIT) has formally arrested a gunrunner arrested by the Karnataka police earlier for his alleged involvement of killing Journalist-Activist Gauri Lankesh in the city past year.

The SIT is now questioning a man with links to gunrunners in Bijapur, who allegedly provided the weapon for the killing. We have submitted some evidence gained during investigation in a sealed envelope to the court, which is why the court extended the date of Naveen Kumar's custody with the police.

People hold placards and candles during a vigil for Gauri Lankesh, a senior Indian journalist who according to police was shot dead outside her home on Tuesday by unidentified assailants in Bengaluru, in Ahmedabad, India, September 6, 2017. He is reportedly linked to the Sanatan Sanstha outfit and its affiliate the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. He was also at the Sanstha headquarters in Goa for several days a year ago for a conference. Just because he was in possession of the book does not mean he had links to Sanathan Sanstha.

It is suspected that Naveen provided logistics to the killer by conducting a recce around Lankesh's house on September 3 and 5 past year. The police are now trying to force a statement out of him and are trying to fix him in the case, he contended.

After going through the murder cases of Narendra Dabholkar, Govind Pansare and M M Kalburgi, the bullets used to kill Gauri match only with the one used in the killing of Kalburgi.
