The brutal murder of a firebrand journalist

Editors Guild of India statement on the killing of Gauri Lankesh

The Editors Guild of India is deeply shocked and strongly condemns the murder of Gauri Lankesh, senior journalist and Editor, Lankesh Patrika.

Gauri Lankesh was a known critic of the Central government on key issues and had fearlessly expressed her views in the newspaper she edited as well as in other forums. Her killing is an ominous portent for dissent in democracy and a brutal assault on the freedom of the press.

The Editors Guild of India demands that the Government of Karnataka acts with alacrity to bring the culprits to justice apart from instituting a judicial probe into the killing.
