A new development in the Gauri Lankesh murder case has left people dumbfounded and also angry after a sketch that was made to recognize the murderer of journalist Gauri Lankesh, has found a resemblance to MLA Suresh Gowda’s personal secretary, M Prabahkar, because of the tilak on his face and overall facial features. The sketches were released by the SIT, 40 days after Gauri Lankesh’s murder outside her residence at Rajarajeshwari Nagar. The sketches were made by the help of the CCTV cameras present at the place of the incident and live-witness accounts who saw two men in a bike with their helmet visors pulled up, and with the help of other technologies.
Although, the sketches haven’t been of much help and won’t get the investigative police any favours for this blunder because M. Prabhakar has nothing to do with the case.
This has been indeed an embarrassing moment for the authorities and a serious lapse in their technological prowess because it is likely to get the case delayed once more as they scramble to find out more information to make another as much an accurate depiction of the the suspects by interviewing the eyewitnesses, who might not have a great recollection of that day anymore.
