As Gauri Lankesh was a staunch critic of Hindutva, every other person, politicians and journalists accused right-wing political parties and organizations. But now when the Congress MLCs close aide is arrested in relation to the murder of Gauri Lankesh, so-called secular forces, candle-march group, politicians and media houses have kept themselves pin-drop silence.

SIT official further noted that a diary seized from Kale’s possession had revealed the involvement of Rajesh Bangera. “Kale had written ‘Rajesh Sir’ in the diary and that is where we got to know of him initially. We followed the lead and gathered more information about him,” the official added.
On the basis of this information, Rajesh was arrested by SIT on July 23 and on Wednesday he was sent to 13-day remand by a local court.
