Levels of toxic organic compounds were up to three times higher on average in the e-cigarette users compared with the controls. The American Lung Association explained why: "There is no government oversight of these products ".

Kumar was today produced before a court on Friday which remanded him in police custody in the Lankesh case till March 13 for further interrogation. The shooter and his accomplice reportedly took a route from Nayandahalli towards PES College campus and then took a right turn to reach the rear side of Gauri's residence at Ideal Home Layout from where they positioned themselves to ambush Gauri when she returned home from work. Virendre Ichalkaranjikar is also national president of Hindu Vidhinya Parishad.In October 2017, when Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti held a press conference in the city, Virendra also spoke and demanded an unbiased probe.

Gauri, 55, was the outspoken editor of Gauri Lankesh Patrike, which was known for its frank editorials. "It is too early to divulge his role in the conspiracy and crime", said senior SIT sources.

It is suspected that Naveen provided logistics to the killer by conducting a recce around Lankesh's house on September 3 and 5 a year ago.

The SIT has chose to transfer the case of Kumar's plot to eliminate K S Bhagawan to the Mysuru police. 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.
