The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed that MM Kalburgi murder case be transferred to the special investigative team (SIT) probing journalist Gauri Lankesh murder, and the probe to be monitored by the Karnataka High Court Dharwad Bench.
Umadevi Kalburgi, wife of noted Kannada writer and rationalist Kalburgi, had filed a plea seeking a SIT probe into the killings of her husband.
Umadevi claimed in her petition that her husband was shot dead in Dharwad in Karnataka on August 30, 2015.
Stating that there was a pattern in the killings, Umadevi also sought from the apex court a coordinated probe into the shooting of her husband as well as of activists Narendra Dhabolkar and Govind Pansare.
Umadevi had alleged that shooters from the same organisation were allegedly involved in all the three murders.
