Bengaluru: The grieving kin of Gauri Lankesh have no intentions of joining protest rallies on Thursday to mark the first month of her assassination but will address the media, perhaps, with new plans for the Kannada tabloid.

While protests are scheduled in multiple locations across the country on Thursday, including one from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, Marine Drive in Mumbai, and in states like West Bengal, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, Gauri's younger sister Kavitha Lankesh said the family has decided to keep away from all rallies.

 

“We will be happy when her (Gauri’s) killers are arrested. We are optimistic that the SIT will get them soon,” she told DC.

Ms Lankesh said B.K. Singh, the chief of SIT, has been in constant touch with the family and had briefed them about the process of investigation without disclosing too many details, as it could hamper the progress of efforts to track down Gauri’s killers.
