Just few days back, many reports emerged saying the government of Karnataka was not really interested in solving the Gauri Lankesh murder case, but was rather interested in dragging the investigation and blame the BJP-RSS to gain political mileage during election season.
These predictions have now come true as the case took a new twist today. The SIT which was investigating the naxal angle, today disclosed about a complaint received from a person called Premalatha Diwakar Shasti against Raghaveshwara Swamiji about his involvement in the murder of Gauri Lankesh. In the complaint, Premalatha alleged that Gauri Lankesh had spoken against Raghaveshwara Swamiji many times before which has lead him to give supari for her murder.
It is said that Premalatha filed complaint just 3 days after Gauri Lankesh’s death after which the SIT looked for leads in the case. But SIT confirmed that they haven’t found any evidence against Raghaveshwara Swamiji and therefore they suspected the handy work of naxals. But now, the police are under constant pressure to fix Raghvaeshwara Swamiji and blame the BJP-RSS cadre. Ever since the news about Premalatha’s complaint was made public, the SIT have started receiving many calls demanding the arrest of Raghveshwara Swamiji which has lead to suspicions on the role of left lobby.

So who is this Premalatha Diwakar Shashtri, why did she file a complaint against Raghaveshwara Swamiji?
Premalatha is an television artist and singer, who is well known for her fake stories and threatening her colleagues. She and her husband were also arrested for blackmailing some of the fellow artists.
Years ago, few devotees filed a complaint that Premalatha and her husband are threatening them, later the couple were arrested. But to divert the issue, the couple filed a sexual harassment case against the Swamiji. The case turned murkier when she kept changing her stand and accusing him of various other criminal acts. The police could not find any evidence and the court rejected her plea to arrest the swamiji.
So, this same lady has again tried to implicate Raghaveshwara Swamiji in Gauri Lankesh murder case. But the police seems to have no clue about the murder and their investigation steps looks like they have already made up their mind to fix a right wing person in the murder plot.
Take a look!
Few days back, they questioned Vikram Sampath, musician and the winner of Sahitya Academy Yuva Puraskar Award and organiser Bangalore Literature festival.
For what was he questioned…? Because Gauri Lankesh had written an article against him 2 years back.
Bizarre that SIT probing #gaurilankeshmurder wants to record my statement only cos she wrote ONE article criticizing me. Times we live in!

Later they questioned Gauri Lankesh’s brother, naxals and the list went on and on! But until now they have not been able to find single clue. All of a sudden they said they were involving Scotland Yard police (The metropolitan police service of London). The question is, are our police and investigating agencies so dumb that they cannot find a single clue?
The entire set of event looks like the political class wants the police to implicate right wing organisation but the police are unable to find any evidence against them. Now, suddenly swamiji angle has been brought in. And the reason why government is interested to blame Swamiji is because he has always opposed Siddaramaiah government’s appeasement politics in the state.
These turn of events only show that the case will definitely lead no where and instead will be dragged and finally some person will be made scapegoat!!!
