Senior journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh may have been killed by hired professionals, the Bengaluru police suspect, hoping the CCTV cameras installed by the dead scribe might have caught them in the act.
Seven bullets were fired at senior journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh around 8 pm Tuesday, when she was about to enter her house. Three of those bullets hit her, killing her instantly.
It is reported that the police have asked permission to unlock the footage captured in the two CCTV cameras that the journalist had installed outside her house.
The journalist’s family had asked her to set up the camera as her house was surrounded by vacant plots.
