Sainath and Sagarika Ghose, Swaraj India leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, documentary producers Anand Patwardhan and Rakesh Sharma, and civil rights activists Teesta Setalvad, Kavitha Krishnan and Jignesh Mevani, besides film producer Praksah Rai.

Lankesh, the 55-year-old editor of a Kannada tabloid Gauri Lankesh Patrike, was gunned down outside her home in the city's southwest suburb on the night of 5 September by an unknown assailant.

SIT sleuths probing the murder of journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh are confident that they will arrive at a conclusion on what led to the murder in two to three days.

Prasad targeting Siddaramaiah government presented copies of news reports on Lankesh's brother, Indrajit claims where he had asserted that the slain journalist used to work for the surrender of naxalites.

A commemorative edition of "Gauri Lankesh Patrike" was launched at the venue.

"The investigation is going on into Gauri Lankesh's killing. We haven't got any vital clue so far", they added. "What we're up against is the largest machine of hate".

Thousands of people gathered in Bengaluru for a protest rally in Gauri Lankesh s name.

"When I say "I am Gauri", it means that we will not allow us to be silenced", he said.

"I highly doubt the role of Naxals in Gauri's murder because a Naxalite has never come out and killed anyone in the city".

The progressive forum "Gauri Lankesh Hatya Virodhi Vedike" arranged the protest rally, reported the IANS.

Marchers sang protest songs and held slogans with the words "Long live Gauri Lankesh".

Members of the Communist Party of India-Marxist-Leninist-Liberation, Karnataka Janashakthi, the Aam Aadmi Party and several student groups were also part of the rally.

Apart from AAP, around 50,000 people are expected to join the rally that will be meeting at the Central College ground, India Today reported.

Progressive thinkers, writers, social activists, artistes and intellectuals formed the forum last week to protest Lankesh's killing.
