Read what the celebrities have written on Twitter:

Shabana Azmi: Gauri Lankesh shot dead outside her home. Shocking, devastating. Dabholkar, Pansare (and) Kalburgi culprits must be punished.

Javed Akhtar: Dhabolkar, Pansare, Kalburgi and now Gauri Lankesh. If one kind of people are getting killed which kind of people are the killers. 

Shekhar Kapur: To kill someone for their views is not democracy, its beginnings of a Banana Republic, where violence speaks louder than words.

Renuka Shahane: Another liberal, rational voice snuffed out by 'unidentified assailants'. Gauri Lankesh RIP. Dabholkar, Kalburgi, Pansare. Who killed them?

Farhan Akhtar: Shameful. What kind of society are we becoming? Deepest condolences to the family and hope justice is delivered soon. 

Shirish Kunder: When "intellectual" becomes an abuse, words are replied with bullets.RIP. Gauri Lankesh. 

Ashoke Pandit: Silence of INC (Indian National Congress) India leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Randeep S Surjewala, Manish Tewari on the inhumane killing of Gauri Lankesh is shameful. 

Dia Mirza: This is deeply disturbing. Culprits must be found and punished. Gauri Lankesh.
