Shooter of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar arrested


Bengaluru: The CBI and Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Saturday afternoon arrested the alleged shooter of Pune-based rationalist Dr Narendra Dabholkar from Aurangabad in Maharashtra.

The accused, a pro-Hindutva activist, Sachin Prakashrao Andure was arrested on a tip-off from the Karnataka Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is probing the murder of activist-journalist Gauri Lankesh.

The SIT had shared with the CBI inputs on Andure and had said that he is a “person of interest” in their case after going through accused Amol Kale’s diary, revealed top sources.

Dr Dabholkar was shot dead on August 20, 2013 in Pune by two bike borne assailants.
