‘Some try­ing to di­vert Lankesh mur­der probe’

DNA (Delhi) - - INDIA -

Panaji: Goa-based right-wing or­gan­i­sa­tion, Sanatan Sanstha, on Fri­day said some “anti-Hindu el­e­ments” are spread­ing false news about its “in­volve­ment” in the killing of Kar­nataka jour­nal­ist Gauri Lankesh in a bid to “di­vert” the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Lankesh, 55, was shot dead at her res­i­dence in Bengaluru by an uniden­ti­fied as­sailant on Septem­ber 5.

Though the Kar­nataka gov­ern­ment has said that they didn’t want to dis­cuss the Foren­sic Science Lab­o­ra­tory (FSL) re­port which could in­di­cate the type of weapon used in the crime, the SIT has said it was look­ing into whether any right-wing group was in­volved or if it was the hand­i­work of nax­als who were un­happy with the ef­forts of Lankesh to bring them into the main­stream.—PTI
