Mumbai Press Club condemns a brutal murder of Kishore Dave, who was the bureau chief of a Gujarati newspaper ‘Jai Hind’ in Junagadh. He was stabbed six-seven times with knife on Monday night. He was alone when he was attacked. An office assistant found him dead.
Relatives of Mr Dave, 53, allege that the son of a local politician is responsible for the murder. Mumbai Press Club seeks immediate arrest of culprit(s) and impartial inquiry in the case. We also reiterate our long-pending demand for a law to protect working journalists.
