Writer, publisher and editor of Gauri Lankesh Patrike, Gauri Lankesh  was shot dead at her house in Rajarajeshwari Nagar in Bengaluru late on September 5.

There were threats, defamation cases and controversies galore, but she fought them with courage. Gauri called herself an “activist-journalist” without hesitation and took up issues that went beyond her calling as a journalist and hard-hitting stories she published.
