It was seen as a reference to Naveen Kumar.
The arrest of Kumar in the Gauri Lanksh murder case 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.
The advocate, Virendra Ichalkaranjikar, who is head of the Sanstha-linked Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad, was part of a press conference of Sanatan Sanstha and the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on the Gauri Lankesh case in September a year ago. The court has reserved it orders until 15 March on whether to allow a narco-analysis test.
Kumar, according to the police official, was a member of a hard-line Hindu group called the Sanatan Sanstha. However, after Naveen's arrest, he has gone underground. Just because he was in possession of the book does not mean he had links to Sanathan Sanstha.

Naveen also reportedly was familiar where Gauri Lankesh stayed in Raja Rajeshwari Nagar. Kumar has been in SIT custody since March 2. Kumar belongs from Birur town in Chikkamagaluru district, about 250 kilometres west of Bengaluru. The radical outfit has been linked in Maharashtra in the murder case of rationalists Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare. "We are not even sure whether Praveen is his real name or not, but we have some definite clues, and efforts are on to track him down", a senior police officer said.
The 3rd Court of the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate has given the SIT custody of Kumar for 5 days. Naveen's family has kept up that he is pure and not the slightest bit associated with the case.
The police officer said Kumar has been apprehended on Friday on suspicion of providing weapons used to kill Lankesh. Police sources said it had not yet been decided whether the conspiracy to kill Bhagawan, which was discovered in the course of the Gauri Lankesh investigations, would become a part of the Arms Act case where Kumar was first arrested, or whether a new case will be filed in Mysuru, where Kumar had conducted preparations, including alleged recces of the writer's home to carry out a killing.
