Defence lawyers said Kumar, who was taken in only for questioning by the SIT, has been made an accused without any evidence.

The Editor of Lankesh Patrike Kannada magazine, Gauri Lankesh, was shot dead outside her residence in Bengaluru on September 5th previous year. "We are not sure yet if it's is Naveen Kumar on the bike doing recce that got captured on the CCTV, but we are sure that he was involved in finalising the attack and escape strategies", said SIT sources.
At the hearing on Naveen's bail plea in court, public prosecutor A. Nirmal Rani sought his custody, saying the SIT needed to interrogate him more on his links to the murder. Despite denials by Sanatan Sanstha about its links to Naveen Kumar, a senior advocate linked to the Sanstha appeared in court on Friday on behalf of Kumar and assisted advocate Vedamurthy, who had earlier appeared for the accused.
In an interview to Reuters in 2015, the members of the Sanatan Sanstha said they were preparing for the advent of a divine Hindu kingdom in India. He was also at the Sanstha headquarters in Goa for several days previous year for a conference.
After going through the murder cases of Narendra Dabholkar, Govind Pansare and M M Kalburgi, the bullets used to kill Gauri match only with the one used in the killing of Kalburgi. The court did not consider the police's plea to include charges of attempt to murder and conspiracy in the case since investigations had revealed that Kumar was allegedly at advanced stage of executing the killing of K S Bhagawan, an outspoken writer, rationalist and critic of some Hindu religious beliefs.
Kumar's family has maintained that he was innocent and in no way connected to the case.
