The report states that the orders to “go soft” on the accused have come from Delhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is personally monitoring the matter on a daily basis. “While the Modi Government doesn’t support any terror activities, they do not want to be seen as anti-Hindu or against Hindutva,” the report mentions.

Furthermore, in the report, it is mentioned that the political pressure on Maharashtra ATS is hampering the investigation in Gauri Lankesh’s Murder. Karnataka Special Investigation Team (SIT) alleged that Maharashtra ATS has not submitted any information regarding the same.
