Bangalore: The murder of Gauri Lankesh, a famous left-wing journalist from Karnataka, was caught in the crossfire. The involvement of right-wing organisations created an uncomfortable situation for the ruling party BJP. The investigation of the case was handed over to the SIT. The investigation found that he was murdered by professional killer Ganesh Miskin. The SIT has made some more interesting revelations after its investigation. In August 2015, another writer and researcher, Dr. M.M. Kalburghi was murdered. The suspicion once again went to right-wing organisations.
The SIT in its charge sheet has claimed that Gauri Lankesh and Kalburghi were murdered by Ganesh Miskin. The sit-sheet was filed by the SIT in the court on Saturday. Apart from Ganesha, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) has also indicted Amol Kale, Praveen Prakash Chatur, Vasudeva Lord Suryavanshi, Sharad Kalaskar and Amit Ramachandra Baddi in the charge sheet. According to the Special Investigation Team, the gang was inspired by the Sanatan Sanstha book 'Kshatra Dharma Sadhana', a Hindu fundamentalist organisation.
These people were angry with Kalburghi's speech during a debate on the Prevention of Karnataka Superstition Act, 2013 held on 9th June, 2014 at Vigyan Bhawan in Bengaluru. In this speech, Kalburghi advocated a superstition-free society. Displeased with his speech, the gang compared Kalburgi to the evil in Kshatra Dharma Sadhana and planned to assassinate Kalburghi. Professional killer Ganesh Miskin had planned the events in full.
