He stressed that the CBI should conduct the probe, but also said he was convinced that the ongoing investigation had made progress, as Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramiah had told him.

"We strongly believe that such silencing methods are an attempt of divisive forces in a democratic system to stifle the media", the memorandum said.

She was laid to rest with full state honours amid chants of "Gauri Lankesh Amar Rahe (Long live Gauri Lankesh)" as her body was lowered into the grave.

Gadkari sought to put the onus of maintaining law and order on the Congress government in Karnataka.

Investigators pinned their hopes on the CCTV footage to get some clues about the identity of the killers.

The Tuesday's murder saw several organizations protesting against the killing of the veteran Journalist, with several prominent personalities including Journalist Ravish Kumar and other senior journalists taking to the streets of Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Udupi and other cities. However, some in the party said it would tarnish the image of the Siddaramaiah government.

Gauri was known for her critical views of Hindutva politics, and many have now drawn a parallel with the murders of rationalists, including M M Kalburgi, in the recent past.

"In a democracy, we have tolerate the voice of dissent".

She demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should look into the matter and provide answers for the attacks.

Senior journalists BR Lenin, P Siva Kumar, Ch Sudhakar, Noora Srinivas, G Venkat and others also expressed shock at the killing of the journalist.
