DCP M N Anucheth, the investigating officer in the case, told PTI that Naveen has been named as an accused and arrested by the SIT for his alleged involvement in the Lankesh murder.

He was taken into custody on March 3 by the Karnataka SIT (Special Investigation Team) for scrutinising.

The police have arrested KT Naveen Kumar, a suspect in the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh, who was killed outside her home in Bengaluru on the night of September 5 past year.

The arrest comes two days after state Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said the SIT would soon clear the air whether the police have picked up the right person in the case.

"Yes, he has been arrested, but whether he is the primary accused can be determined only when chargesheet is filed". Naveen's family has maintained that he is innocent and in no way connected to the case.

SIT sources have claimed that Naveen Kumar had agreed to subject himself for narco analysis before he was brought to the open court where he turned hostile and refused to undergo the procedure. SIT produced him before the court today where he was remanded to five days police custody till 13th this month.
