No arrests in Gauri Lankesh murder case, actor Prakash Raj takes a dig at PM Modi

Bengaluru, Oct 3:-- Actor Prakash Raj took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, as no one has been arrested so far in the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh, who was close to the actor, media reports said.

 

Threatening to return his national awards, Raj called the prime minister "a bigger actor" who deserves the honours instead.

 

Lankesh, a popular journalist who took stands against Right-wing ideology, was shot three times by some unknown assailants outside her residence last month.

 

Her murder bears a resemblance with earlier murders of rationalists Narendra Dabholkar and MM Kalburgi.

 

Her brother Indrajit Lankesh told reporters that a lady who stays opposite his sister's house heard the noise of the shooting first which she initially mistook for the sound of  fire crackers and later found Gauri's body lying prone.

 

Lankesh, 55, was the editor of a Kannada weekly Lankesh Patrikewas.

 

Gauri Lankesh's murder had sparked country-wide protests.

 

Though the SIT has been formed by the Karnataka government, no one has been arrested so far.
