Senior journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh has been shot dead at her residence in Bengaluru's Rajarajeshwari Naga on 5 September.
Reportedly, she was shot by three unidentified gunmen.
More details awaited.
Lankesh was the editor of the Gauri Lankesh Patrike, a magazine described as an 'anti-establishment' publication.
Last year in November she was convicted of defamation and was sentenced to six months in jail, after she ran a piece in 2008 that Prahlad Joshi, a BJP MP from Dharwad, and Umesh Dushi, also of the BJP, found objectionable.
However, the court also granted her bail and allowed her to appeal to a higher court.
