Thousands flocked the roads of Bengaluru, pledging to take Gauri Lankesh’s fight forward. Police estimated that about 4,000 to 5,000 people participated in the ‘I Am Gauri’ rally.

Echoes of voices chanting “I am Gauri, we are Gauri”, could be heard as citizens marched from Bengaluru city railway station to Central College ground, where a convention was conducted.

At the Central College, the organisers made it clear that the rally was not a condolence meeting, but a show of strength and unity.
