Special Investigation Team (SIT) has conducted raids at the Belagavi farmhouse of Bharat Kurne, who was arrested recently in connection with the murder of writer, Gauri Lankesh. While Kurne is the 12th person to be arrested out of the 13 accused in the murder of Gauri Lankesh, his farmhouse was allegedly used for training the youth in firearms and for plotting the killings. The 37-year-old farmer allegedly had links with a Hindu fringe group of Maharashtra. He is allegedly one of the two-men who waited in the car for the shooter and his accomplice to finish their job and drove them to safety in the outskirts of Bengaluru.
