As senior Kannada journalist Gauri Lankesh shot dead in Bengaluru on Tuesday, journalists in Hyderabad staged a protest rally from Somajiguda press club to Khairtabad X road for the safety of writers and journalists on Wednesday in Hyderabad. Lankesh was an outspoken critic of right-wing Hindutva politics. Her death is being counted as the latest in a string of murders of ‘rationalist’ writers. (Pics. Mazher)
