Bengaluru: A complaint was filed against renowned writer and playwright Girish Karnad on Friday for wearing a placard around his neck that read ‘Me too urban Naxal’ during an event to mark the death anniversary of journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh.

“By posting such a title on his body, he has tried to promote and propagate violent and criminal activities of Naxals,” said NP Amruthesh, Gauri Lankesh murder case defence lawyer.
