Bengaluru: Though not good enough to identify the culprits or even the colour of the garments they wore, CCTV footage obtained from cameras installed at Gauri Lankesh’s home have caught the entire incident.
According to the source, the footage shows Gauri parking her white Toyota Etios in front of the gate between 7.45-7.55 p.m on Tuesday night. She steps out of the car, with the keys still in the ignition, to open the gate and park the car inside.
As she walks towards the gate, a man wearing a helmet and a jacket enters the frame, pulls out a pistol and fires a single shot at Gauri who had by then half-opened the gate.
The journalist, hit by a bullet, is seen running towards the veranda of her house, when the assassin fires three continuous rounds while standing at the gate. While two bullets slam into her, one misses and hits the wall. She collapses on the ground and dies on the spot while the assassin is seen running back to his associate waiting on the bike....
