Gauri Lankesh's death, an act by communal forces

Warangal: Severe condemnation was poured, here on Wednesday, against the murder of Karnataka journalist Gauri Lankesh as her final rites were held with full state honours in Bengaluru on the day. "These killings are a threat to democracy and I appeal to everyone to unite and fight against radical and fascist Hindutva ideology which has paralyzed the entire country", said Pappu Dutta. He also said his government had an "open mind" to an investigation by CBI, which the slain journalist's family has demanded.

As per reports, three bullets were pumped in her body. "It is the responsibility of the Karnataka government to maintain law and order". However, some in the party said it would tarnish the image of the Siddaramaiah government. "It is a sad reminder of danger the journalists facing from anti progressive forces", he said.

Press Club of Bengaluru president Sadashiva Shenoy, who was closely associated with Gauri, said, "divisive forces can not muzzle the liberal voices by resorting to killing". "We want the forces who were allegedly troubling her to be probed", said Dharmendra Jore, secretary, Press Club of Mumbai.
