Bangalore: Police has detained two people in the murder of anti-superstition activist Narendra Dabholkar on late Friday.

The two suspects, said to be sharp shooters, were picked up from old Goa by a team of Pune and Goa police. However, they refused to divulge any more details.

The family of the murdered activist has been asking for a CBI enquiry in the case.

Dabholkar, who spearheaded the anti-superstition movement in Maharashtra, was shot dead on August 20 in Pune.

The 70-year-old was on his morning walk when he was shot near the Omkareshwar Bridge in the city by some gunmen on a motorcycle. The police said four shots were fired at him at close range, two of which hit him in the back of his head.
