Indian journalist shot dead outside Bangalore home 

Lankesh was the editor of the newspaper Lankesh Patrike, founded by her father, a journalist and activist himself.She went on to set up her own weekly magazine, the Gauri Lankesh Patrike.

….According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, there have been no convictions in any of the 27 cases of journalists murdered for their work in India since 1992.

One of Lankesh’s last tweets before her death read, “Why do I feel that some of ‘us’ are fighting between ourselves? We all know our ‘biggest enemy’. Can we all please concentrate on that?”

Her killing like others before her “raises alarms about the state of freedom of expression in the country,” according to a statement issued by Amnesty International India.
