The 9,235-page charge sheet was filed with the Principal Civil and Sessions court here on Friday and in it, the SIT stated that Lankesh was targeted by a network within the Sanatan Sanstha. It was also stated in the charge sheet that Lankesh’s murder took five years to plan.

PTI has quoted Special Public Prosecutor S Balan as saying that there was no enmity between Lankesh and the people who killed her. She was killed because she had a certain ideology and wrote and spoke about it, he informed

As it stands, 18 people have been accused of the murder- Parashuram Waghmare the shooter and Amol Kale, Sujith Kumar alias Praveen and Amit Degwekar, the masterminds, according to the SIT.
