Another suspect arrested in Gauri Lankesh killing
ANOTHER suspect has been arrested in connection with the killing of journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh, police said on Tuesday but denied speculation about him being the assassin.
The Special Investigating Team (SIT) of Karnataka police probing Lankesh’s killing said it has arrested 26-year- old Parashuram Waghmare from Sindhagi in Vijaypura district of the State. Waghmare was produced before the 3rd Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s court here which remanded him in SIT custody for 14 days for further interrogation, an official release said.
Inspector General of Police B K Singh, who heads the SIT, told PTI that nothing has emerged during the probe so far to suggest that Waghmare had shot Lankesh.
