Brutal Murder! TV Journalist Stabbed to Death While Covering Protest

Police in India have detained 4 persons in connection with the brutal murder of a  young television journalist in the North-Eastern Indian state of Tripura while covering a protest on Wednesday.

Shantanu Bhowmick, 28, from Dinraat news channel, was attacked and abducted late Wednesday while he was at protests held by the Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura, the state’s police chief AK Shukla said.

The incident took place in Mandai in West Tripura district. Bhowmick was later found with multiple stab wounds and died by the time he reached the hospital.

Four members of the IPFT, an organisation representing tribal people, have been detained for questioning, Shukla said.

This is the second incident of a journalist being killed in India within a month.
