Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday said a Special Investigation Team (SIT) will probe the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh+ , while adding that he is open to CBI investigation in the case.
Lankesh, 55, editor of Kannada tabloid ‘Gauri Lankesh Patrike’, was killed last night by unknown assailants. She had parked her car outside the gate of her residence and was walking to the main entrance when attackers fired at least seven rounds. As she ran to the door, three bullets hit Lankesh in the head, neck and chest, while four struck the front wall of the house.

As journalists and activists condemned the shooting of noted Bengaluru reporter Gauri Lankesh, describing it as vendetta for her fearless stand against divisive politics, some on Twitter, who claimed ties to BJP leaders, boiled over with hatred.Ashish Mishra, whose profile declares “I am Hindu and Team Modi”, and whose profile photo shows him with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, said Ms Lankesh, 55, deserved her ending. He is followed by union ministers including Ravi Shankar Prasad.
