Mumbai: The family members of the slain communist leader Govind Pansare and the anti-superstition activist Dr Narendra Dabholkar today alleged that the BJP-led government in Maharashtra lacked the will to trace their killers.

This government and the previous one lacked the will to find the killers, Dabholkar's daughter Mukta and Pansare's daughter-in-law Megha told reporters here.

"It is our belief that both were killed by radical elements and those with Nathuram Godse mentality," they said.

While Dabholkar was killed in Pune in August 2013, Pansare was shot dead on February 16 this year and died at a Mumbai hospital a few days later.
