CID Director General of Police, Praveen Sood, reconstituted the probe team after the Supreme Court on November 26 rapped the Karnataka government, saying it was “doing nothing” in the M M Kalburgi murder.
More than one official familiar with the probe into Lankesh’s killing said that although the investigation remained open in terms of tracking down the killers — and formal forensics and ballistics reports are awaited — there has been a “significant finding” that suggests a link between the killings of Kalburgi and Lankesh.
The chief minister said the incident has taken place at a time when progressive secular thoughts were getting strengthened in Karnataka and added that Lankesh was killed in a manner similar to that of M M Kalburgi.
