The Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the Gauri Lankesh murder case has hit a roadblock after the only arrested accused KT Naveen Kumar refused to undergo narco test after having consented to it earlier.

Kumar, who was flown to Ahmedabad on Monday for the narco analysis, gave a written objection to all the tests in front of the forensic psychologist, reported CNN-News18. The team, along with Kumar, will now return to Bengaluru.

The state government had set up the SIT to probe the journalist-activist's killing.
