Bengaluru: One bullet killed Gauri that was shot from behind, says post-mortem report


Daijiworld Media Network – Bengaluru (RJP)

Bengaluru, Sep 13: As per the post-mortem report, Gauri Lankesh was shot dead from close range and she died instantly. And only one bullet made her breathe her last.

The report, which was submitted to the Special Investigation Team (SIT), says that Gauri was killed by a single bullet that was fired at her on her back. The bullet pierced her left lung and heart and killed her within seconds.

Gauri was shot dead on September 5 when she came from her office and entered her house at Rajarajeshwari Nagar in city at around 7.45 pm.

It is assumed that other two bullets were fired earlier from front at her abdomen. Then the third bullet was fired from behind probably when she tried to run away from the assailants.

Gauri must have survived only for a minute, say experts after examining the injury to her heart and lungs.

Experts also say that the post-mortem report is of limited help now as all the bullets which entered the body of Gauri exited from her body. Three entry as well as exit wounds are found on her body.

If any bullet was retrieved from her body, it could have provided more information to the forensic experts on the firearm used, possible range from where the bullets were fired and some more ballistic details. But forensics do not have much to offer in this case.

Now the police will investigate on the cartridges and bullet fragments they have collected from the crime spot.

SIT officials believe and insist that a trained man fired the bullets at Gauri after analysing the CCTV footage of the shooter.

    Situation is such that if the real culprit comes and surrenders and says he doesn't belong to any organization, people will not believe. All are waiting for a culprit who belongs to particular organization.

    Is it? Very good progress. So the next update will be next week , that Gauri slipped only once and not twice before falling. In a months time , this will be forgotten like all other murders in the state.

    Flavian, I am afraid, i too might get shot. If I am shot front, Jossey might not comment like " COWard got shot from behind"!!
    I too do not believe in stupidity in all religions including my own. But I am not against who follow their faith. i don't mock at other religions like Gouri or Pansare did.
    If some one hangs on with feeble beliefs for anything and argues, I rebut with rational points. Irony is that when I question Hindu beliefs, I am applauded, but when I talk about other religions, I am hit with so many disagrees here.

    I totally agree with Shankar. He is right. Why should she speak against our Religion. If she had the guts to speak against a religion which I don't want to name she would have got death threats. Then people will say she is wrong. When people who speak against our Religion then it is fine? This is the apathy. Pls note 1 year back Janana Peeta Prashasthi Vijetha Girish Karnad gave a statement that Bengaluru Airport should be named Tippu Sulthan. This guy doesn't have the guts to say the name before renaming in the name of Kempe Gowda Intl Airport. He thought by doing this he is doing a great thing. What happened?? All our Politicians were united and condemned him. Pls not Sahithis must concentrate on their work and not talk nonsense which is not required. Pls note Kuvempu, Da Ra Bendre etc were not giving speeches like this.

    Vikram, I agree with your views. There is a video on you tube , where Gauri at a function in Mlore DC office, says ballantly 'Hindu dharmakke appa amma illa' . So is this okay. May I ask my brothers and sisters of other religions out here. Guys, Would you have kept quiet, had she mentioned the same statement on your religion and then said its freedom of speech?? No way !!! So just because she defames Hindus, she becomes an intelectual.

    Result of religious intolerance or fundamentalism in India.

    Who is responsible for her murder?

    Hindu Aikyavedi, K P Sasikala's hate speech elucidate some light in that direction.

    Let us hope that the culprit would be caught ASAP and the identity of the organization/person responsible for such crime will be known to the public.

    Yesterday there was a big protest against the killing of Gauri. Nation wants to know:

    WHY THE HONOURABLE PM HAS NOT CONDEMNED THE KILLING?
    WHY NO PEOPLE FROM BJP FOR THE RALLY?
    WHY NO SUPPORT FROM SANGH PARIVAR?

    The answer is very simple. You need not be a rocket scientist to decipher that Ms. Lankesh loathed BJP/RSS and the feeling is mutual from the other side too.

    But that in itself does not mean that BJP/RSS has any role in her murder. So please refrain from making such deductions merely based on this single factor.

    Really? So, if the killers had shot her from the front you would have hailed them as heroes?

    The killers came to her house with the objective of killing her and they got the job done. So what difference does it make if they shot her in the front or her back?

    Abdul Narayan D'Souza, Nothing wrong with his name. He is a true secular person.
    Burnol prices will go up if they catch the murderer.
    Siddu knows the murderer. He will never catch.
