Parents of an RTI activist, who was killed on March 21 in Mangalore, and activists from Nationalist Organisations Collective Friday staged a protest here and demanded arrest of key suspects.
RTI activist Vinayak Baliga, 51, was hacked to death while he was visiting a local temple on March 21. Mangalore Police have so far arrested three persons, including two contract killers who carried out the murder.
The probe has revealed links between the killers and employees of Naresh Shenoy, founder of NaMo Brigade. Police have issued a look-out notice for Shenoy who has been absconding.
Speaking at the protest outside the DC office, president of the Federation of Indian Rationalists Association Narendra Nayak said civil society in Mangalore had failed to respond effectively to the murder of Baliga.
