PTI, BELAGAVI:  Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah today termed the killing of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh "an onslaught on humanity" and said his government would ensure that the culprits were brought to justice.

The government is "honest" in its efforts to find those behind the killing and bring them to justice, he told the Legislative Assembly on the opening day of the winter session of the legislature here, which was marked by thin attendance. Gauri Lankesh, known to be an anti-establishment voice with strident anti-right wing views, was shot dead at close range by unknown assailants at her home here on the night of September 5.

"It is a cruel death..it is an onslaught on humanity," Siddaramaiah said during the obituary reference to Lankesh in the House. "We have still not been able to nab those who killed her. An SIT has been formed to nab them," he said. Informing the Assembly that killers of rationalist M M Kalburgi were also yet to be found, the chief minister said, "The government and investigating team are honest in their efforts to nab the culprits."
