According to sources in an audacious attack, the 55 year old Kannada journalist, known for her left-leaning outlook and forthright views against "Hindutva politics", was shot dead by unidentified assailants at her residence in Bengaluru last night. Ms Lankesh had returned home in her car and was opening the gate when motorcycle borne assailants fired at her indiscriminately, with two bullets hitting her in the chest and one on her forehead. Meanwhile, hordes of journalists in various parts of the country hit the streets today against the killing of the journalist.
