Bengaluru: In light of the recent killing of journalist Gauri Lankesh, editor of Kannada tabloid Gauri Lankesh Patrike, thousands of protesters took to the streets of Bengaluru on Tuesday demanding justice for her.

According to reports, the protesters began their march from Bengaluru Railway Station and reached the Central College grounds. At Central College, some participants are addressing the gathering.

The protesters also released a special edition of tabloid Gauri Lankesh Patrike at the Central College ground.

Thousands of activists, including journalists, thinkers and reportedly some politicians are participating in the rally.

CPM’s Sitaram Yechury, and activists Medha Patkar and Teesta Setalvad are also among the nearly 50,000 voices demanding the arrest of those involved in the killing.
