Gauri Lankesh’s family meets Karnataka CM

The family of slain journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh met Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah at his residence here on Saturday to inquire about the probe into her killing.

“Indira Lankesh, Gauri Lankesh’s mother met me today. I have reassured her of government’s resolve to swiftly bring Gauri’s killer to justice,” Siddaramaiah tweeted.

Talking to the media after the meeting, he said he had assured Indira Lankesh that the government would “put all efforts to trace the accused”.

“(Congress President) Sonia Gandhi also spoke to me. She had asked me to see that the accused persons are caught immediately,” he added.

Lankesh, 55, was gunned down at her residence here on Tuesday by three unidentified men who fled from the spot.
