Gauri Lankesh Killers Identified SIT Gathering Evidence Says Karnataka Govt Gauri Lankesh Killers Identified, SIT Gathering Evidence, Says K'taka Govt: The killers of deceased journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh have been identified said the Karnataka government on Tuesday.

With pressure mounting on the police, Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy claimed the police had vital clues. "We have got clues, but we can not tell things to the media for now because we should have correct evidence for the clues we have got", Outlook India quoted Reddy as saying.

"If there are no proper evidence when we file a charge sheet at the court, it won't stand". It added that more evidence is being collected to prove the guilt.

"We are still following some leads and are hopeful of cracking the case soon", a senior member of the SIT said. In an attempt to nab the killers, the state government had also announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for anyone who can help the police nab Lankesh's killers.

According to the CCTV footage, the murderer seems to be a middle-aged man of 34 - 38 years of age. He was reportedly dressed in a formal full sleeves shirt and wore a band on his right wrist. He came in Bajaj Pulsar wearing a helmet, but his face is somewhat visible as the helmet didn't have a visor. Kalburgi's murder case remains unsolved.

As a political slug fest broke out over the killing, her family had pleaded against giving a political colour to it. 55-year-old Lankesh was shot dead by unidentified motorcycle-borne assailants after she had returned home in her auto on September 5. The incident took place after she was returning home from her workplace. Hit with four bullets, Gauri had her last breath.
