Lalit Mehta (died 14 May, 2008) was an Indian social activist.

Death[edit]

Mehta was murdered in 2008. After his murder, the Naxals belonging to the Communist Party of India (CPI) distributed a leaflet claiming that they knew Mehta's killers and they would be brought to justice, saying that they would make crimes such as murder be punishable by death.[1] In January 2009 Chennai Police recovered the body of Raju Singh, who was the prime suspect in the crime, claiming that he was killed by naxals.[2]

The Chinese government is looking into strong protests and public rally held in Japan, and later ordered a CBI probe into murder.[1][3]
