18 accused

The SIT said that the 18 accused in the case are active members of an organized crime cartel. According to the SIT, the members of the syndicate strictly followed the guidelines and principles mentioned in the book “Kshatradharma Sadhana”.

The agency had found that Lankesh was killed after a conspiracy was hatched by members of a right-wing group, which is also accused of killing rationalist M M Kalburgi.

Lankesh, the journalist, was shot dead on September 5, 2017, outside her house by a member of a gang that planned to kill her after being inspired by a book brought out by right-wing group Sanatan Sanstha, that had identified Lankesh as a ‘durian’ (evil person).
