Gauri Lankesh Patrike to be closed soon

Bengaluru: Kavitha Lankesh , sister of murdered journalist Gauri Lankesh, is unsure of the future of Gauri Lankesh Patrike, a weekly tabloid. Gauri was shot dead on Tuesday in front of her house in Raja Rajeshwari Nagar.

The weekly tabloid which was running without advertisements was only dependent on subscriptiona s revenue. However with digitalisation happening, people buying magazine has become less.

Kavitha Lankesh said that her family have not given any thought on this. Gauri struggled a lot to bring out the paper though it was commercially not viable just to keep her father's (late P Lankesh) legacy alive.
But it may not be possible to continue it as it requires a lot of money to sustain it without commercial revenue.'

A decision on the future of the magazine will be taken soon.
