A special investigation team of the Karnataka Police is within striking distance of those involved in the September 5 killing of journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh and the results of their investigation will be evident later this month, Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said here on Saturday. Reiterating that the team had identified the persons involved in the murder, he said further details would be revealed within a couple of weeks.

“Unlike in the murder cases of (Narendra) Dabholkar and (Govind) Pansare (in Maharashtra), the SIT has definite clues and knows the identities of the people behind the murder of Gauri Lankesh. Their identities will be revealed this month,’’ said Reddy.

Sources in the SIT confirmed that they had been able to identify key components of the case, and the individuals engaged for these tasks. As many as four persons have been identified and some technical data is awaited to clear all doubts, sources said.

Lankesh, 55, was shot dead outside her home in west Bengaluru on the evening of September 5, after she returned home from work. A CCTV camera in her front yard captured the killing.
The SIT has found that Lankesh’s killers studied her home and activities not just on the day of the murder, but also a few weeks prior to it. (Source: Indian Express)

Grand victory parade marks Dasara finale in Mysuru

Grand-victory-parade-marks-Dasara-finale-in-Mysuru

Mysuru (Karnataka), Oct 11: A colourful victory parade, led by a dozen caparisoned elephants, from the royal palace in the city centre marked the grand finale of the 11-day Dasara fest here on Tuesday.

Unfazed by sudden rain and cloudy weather, thousands of people from across the state and country assembled along the 5km route to Bannimantap grounds where a torchlight parade in the night culminated the fest on Vijayadashmi, signifying triumph of good over evil.

As Dasara is celebrated as a state-sponsored fest ('nada habba') along with the royal family of the Wodiyar dynasty, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah flagged off the parade at the palace gates by worshipping goddess Chamundeshwari, whose deity was placed in the 750kg golden throne astride jumbo Arjuna.

Governor Vajubhai R. Vala was the chief guest at the torchlight parade on horse drawn carriages in the grounds where about 50,000 people were enthralled by fireworks and cultural show amid tight security.

Besides Mysuru's titular Maharaja Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wodiyar, Queen Mother Pramoda Devi and other royal family members, a dozen cabinet ministers, celebrities, film personalities and dignitaries watched proceedings.

Though the festivities have been subdued in view of the Cauvery river water crisis due to deficit rains, the spectacle of the Dasara procession was not affected, as evident from the presence of around 1.5 lakh people at the finale.

Pomp and grandeur marked the mile-long procession of jumbos, horse-drawn carriages and 40 tableaux depicting the state's rich heritage and tourist spots, cultural troupes and folklore.

After the parade and feasting, hundreds of people, including tourists thronged the royal palaces, museum and Brindava Garden on the city's outskirts near the KRS dam to watch the musical and well-lit fountains.
