Gauri Lankesh Day observed; heres what siblings had to say on ‘probe progress’
Even as friends and family gathered to commemorate the memory of the Gauri Lankesh on her 56 th birth anniversary, it is the differences in the versions as to might have killed the veteran journalist that surfaced prominently.
It need be mentioned that journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh was shot dead here last year leading to political furore between Congress, left parties and even the BJP.
It is said that while Gauri’s sister Kavitha expressed confidence on the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the case, her brother Indrajit does not appear convinced and plans to move to the High Court for a CBI probe.
He said he had decided to move the High Court seeking a CBI investigation, because he wanted a ‘fair probe’ as he felt there was ‘political pressure’ on the SIT.
Indrajit said he had taken the decision as he wanted to ensure that the probe was carried out in ‘all angles’ so that Gouri’s real killers were nabbed and the actual reason behind the killing known.
Kavitha begged to differ saying there has been good progress in the SIT probe and she ‘trusted’ the agency.
Both siblings also differed about observing the day as ‘Gauri Day’, organized here to commemorate her 56th birthday.
The function was attended by Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani, actor Prakash Raj, JNU students’ leaders Kanhaiya Kumar, Shehla Rashid and Umar Khalid, among others. >
