    Gauri Lankesh, a senior journalist in Bengaluru, has been shot dead at her residence in Rajarajeshwari Nagar.

    The Bengaluru Police Commissioner has confirmed the incident; top police officers are rushing to the spot.

    Reports suggest unidentified men shot her three times from close range and she collapsed on the spot.

    She ran the weekly Gauri 'Lankesh Patrike,' a Kannada tabloid, and was seen as a fearless, independent and outspoken journalist. She had been under attack from people with ideological differences.

    BJP is finished in Karnataka. The entire Dal it votebank is now lost. This will have long term effects that will be felt for decades. And good effect in the end. Good riddance for these useless guys.

    I don't know who carried out the hit; but this could have very serious repercussions for BJP in Karnataka.

    it doesn't matter who carried out the hit. For a long time the BJP has been building up an anti-***** image that Modi has done nothing to correct. This event will be seen as a manifestation of the forces he let loose and did not control. I think in Kerala the SNDP will immediately put in efforts to boycott BJP. They have done nothing except kick up trouble anyway.

    wanna bet? If anything, this will work in BJP's favour since this hit is so obvious as a set up that people will see right through it. If you want a parallel, just read up on the "naxal" attack on Chandrababu Naidu a few years back, which was so obviously stage managed that it actually backfired on him politically.

    If anything, remember, its congress who is in power in Karnataka, so they are answerable for this lapse in security.

    yeah, the many decades that the right wing groups openly spent threatening to kill her and her family is suddenly forgotten by the public who are now convinced that it is a political hit job.

    Bangalore seems to be going in seriously wrong direction looking at recent events.
    So unidentified men shot dead an outspoken, independent journalist.
    What the fck are we?Pakistan??????

    Rest in peace.Journalists who could criticise a government fearlessly are just as important as soldiers.

    The political conclusions here aren't complete.

    Karnataka has two extremist Hindu right wing parties, Sri Ram Sena and Bajrang Dal. Both are under VHP and have been butting heads with the BJP since quite sometime.

    The leader of Sri Ram Sena vocally opposes the BJP.
    https://www.telegraphindia.com/1090317/jsp/nation/story_10679700.jsp

    There was also this recent incident where Bajrang Dal and VHP activists killed a BJP worker.

    There's also this careful jibe the RSS has made against the BJP.
    http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/rss-narendra-modi-amit-shah-gdp-doklam/1/1040537.html

    And now this.

    It doesn't look like all is well within the Sangh Parivar.
