Gauri Lankesh murder case: SIT gets 5-day custody of Naveen Kumar

Bengaluru Police makes first arrest in Gauri Lankesh murder case, arrested member of Hindu Yuva Sena

Kumar secured bail in the illegal arms case on Friday but will remain in the custody of the SIT which is probing his alleged role in the Lankesh murder case, according to Veda Murthy, the defense counsel in the case. Naveen was supposed to have helped Gauri's killers source weapons and ammunition. "As this case seems to have political or ideological connections, we want to record the statements of Naveen Kumar, who has been arrested in the case, through narco analysis and brain mapping".

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) set up to probe the 5 September 2017 murder of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh in Bengaluru, on Friday listed K.T.Naveen Kumar as an accused in the case.

Gauri Lankesh was shot dead outside her residence here on September 5 a year ago.

Kumar was yesterday produced before a court here which remanded him in police custody in the case till 13 March for further interrogation.

I think he's seen a lot of different things, he's familiar with what we're doing, he's played with some of the guys we have. I just want to have the opportunity to show I can still play'. "We just thought he could help the team", Thibodeau said.

"He (Naveen Kumar) has been arrested". They said Naveen had been to Goa to attend a conference organised by Sanatan Sanstha.

The advocate, Virendra Ichalkaranjikar, who is head of the Sanstha-linked Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad, was part of a press conference of Sanatan Sanstha and the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on the Gauri Lankesh case in September a year ago. He is reportedly linked to the Sanatan Sanstha outfit and its affiliate the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. The SIT had found a Kannada translation of a book by Jayanth Athavale, the founder of Sanathan Sanstha and a Hindu alamanac, published by Sanathan Prabha along with Athavale's photograph along with 10 bullets and other items when they raided his residence in Manya and Birur.

Indian police have arrested a member of a Hindu extremist group for his alleged involvement in the murder of a left-wing journalist, Gauri Lankesh. The brazen attack on Lankesh was likened to the assassinations of rationalist thinkers-activists Narendra Dabholkar on 20 August 2013 in Pune, Communist Party of India (CPI) leader Govind Pansare on 16 February 2015 in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, and M.M. Kalburgi on 30 August 2015 in Dharwad, Karnataka.

Kumar's family has maintained that he was innocent and in no way connected to the case.
