Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court has rejected a bail plea filed by a main accused in the Gauri Lankesh murder case as the Special Investigation Team (SIT) has delayed filing a chargesheet against him.

Hrishikesh Devadikar (41), one of the alleged masterminds in the murder of the 55-year-old journalist outside her home on September 5, 2017, approached the Karnataka High Court this year, requesting the right to be released on bail due to the SIT’s failure to file a chargesheet within 90 days of his arrest on January 9, 2020.

Two motorcycle-borne murderers shot and killed Gauri Lankesh, outside her home in West Bengaluru on the evening of September 5, 2017.
