Gauri was shot dead by unknown by assailants outside her residence in Bengaluru on September 5, last year.

She was the editor of the Gauri Lankesh Patrike, a tabloid known for "anti-establishment" views.

Following her murder, several protests, across the country and especially in prominent parts of Karnataka, had taken place. ( ANI )
