Mangaluru, Sep 13,2017 : Members of the National Women’s Front staged a protest in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office here on September 13, Tuesday to demand the early arrest of the killers of journalist Gauri Lankesh.
Addressing the protestors, writer Jyothi Guruprasad said Gauri was not just a journalist but a voice of the society, a social activist and progressive thinker. Her killing is unacceptable to the civil society. Any differences must be sorted out through talks and not by silencing voice. Only cowards can resort to such acts, she added.
