Gauri Lankesh Murder: Rs 10 Lakh Reward to Anyone Providing Clues
The Karnataka government on Friday announced a Rs 10 lakh reward to anyone who provides clues about the killing of senior journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh.
The announcement was made by Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy, a day after the city police asked the public to share any information that they may have in connection with the case through a specific phone number and email ID.
Speaking to reporters after meeting Siddaramaiah, he said, "We will give Rs 10 lakh reward to anybody who gives clues about the culprits."
Siddaramaiah on Friday held a meeting with the SIT on the investigation that is in progress in connection with the case.
Reddy, along with SIT chief B K Singh, Director General of Police RK Dutta and Intelligence DG AM Prasad were present at the meeting.
Gauri Lankesh, known to be an anti-establishment voice with strident anti-right wing views, was shot dead at close range by unknown assailants at her home on the night of 5 September.
