Bail plea of 6 accused in Gauri Lankesh murder case rejected

Bengaluru: A special court here on Saturday rejected the bail plea of six accused in the Gauri Lankesh murder case.

Earlier, the court hearing cases registered under the Karnataka Control of Organised Crime Act had dismissed the bail applications of three other accused.

”The bail plea filed by nine accused have been rejected including six on Saturday,” Special Public Prosecutor in the case S Balan said.

He added that the hitman and his prime aide did not move any bail plea.

Lankesh, a left-leaning journalist-activist, was shot dead on September 5, 2017, outside her house here by a member of a gang that apparently planned to kill her after being inspired by a book brought out by right-wing group Sanatan Sanstha, that had identified Lankesh as a ‘durjan’ (evil person).

The Special Investigation Team which probed the case had stated Parashuram Waghmare was her assassin.
