    ನಡೆದಿದ್ದು ಗೌರಿ ಲಂಕೇಶ್ ಹತ್ಯೆ ಪ್ರಕರಣದ ತನಿಖೆ.

    ಆಗ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ್ದು ಶಾರ್ಪ್ ಶೂಟರ್ ತಾಹಿರ್ ಹುಸೇನ್ ಎನ್ನುವ ಮುಸ್ಲಿಂ ಹುಡುಗ.

    ಆತ ಕೈ ತೋರಿಸಿದ್ದು ಶಶಿಧರ್ ಮುಂಡೇವಾಡಿ ಎನ್ನುವ ಸುಪಾರಿ ಹಂತಕನ ಕಡೆ.

    ಆತನ ಗುಂಡಿಗೆ ಬಲಿಯಾಗಲಿದ್ದವನು ಸುನೀಲ್ ಹೆಗ್ಗವರವಳ್ಳಿ ಎನ್ನುವ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತ.

    ಅವನಿಗೆ ಸುಫಾರಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದು ಗೌರಿಯ ಅಪ್ಪ ಲಂಕೇಶ್ ಮೇಷ್ಟ್ರ ಶಿಷ್ಯ ರವಿ ಬೆಳಗೆರೆ.

    ರವಿ ಬೆಳಗೆರೆಯ ಪರ ವಾದ ಮಾಡಲು ನಿಂತಿರುವುದು ಕಾಂಗ್ರೆಸ್ ಪಕ್ಷದ ದಿವಾಕರ್.

    ಬುದ್ದಿಜೀವಿಗಳು ಬೆರಳು ತೋರಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವುದು ಬಲಪಂಥೀಯ ಸಂಘಟನೆಗಳ ಕಡೆ!

    ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ಬುದ್ಧಿಜೀವಿಗಳೇ,ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರೇ,
    ಅದು ನಿಮ್ಮ ನಿಮ್ಮಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆಯುವ ಆಸ್ತಿ ವಿಚಾರವಿರಲಿ,ಕಮೀಷನ್ ವಿಚಾರವಿರಲಿ,ಹೆಣ್ಣಿನ ವಿಚಾರವಿರಲೀ,ವೃತ್ತಿ ವೈಷಮ್ಯವಿರಲೀ…ಯಾವ ವಿಚಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಬೇಕಾದರೂ ನೀವು ನೀವೇ ಹೇಗಾದರೂ ಹೊಡೆದಾಡಿಕೊಂಡು ಸಾಯಿರಿ.ಆದರೆ ಯಾವುದೇ ಕೊಲೆ ನಡೆದಾಕ್ಷಣ ಅದರ ತನಿಖೆ ಮುಗುಗಿಯುವ ಮುನ್ನವೇ ಅದು ವೈಚಾರಿಕ ಕಾರಣಕ್ಕೆ ನಡೆದ ಕೊಲೆ ಎನ್ನುತ್ತಾ ಇನ್ನೊಬ್ಬರ ಕಡೆ ಬೊಟ್ಟು ಮಾಡಿ ಚೀರಾಡುವುದನ್ನು ನಿಲ್ಲಿಸಿ.
