One more scribe murdered in central India

JFA demands special protection laws

Guwahati: Journalists’ Forum Assam, while expressing shock over the
murder of another scribe in central India within a week, has urged the
Madhya Pradesh government to punish the culprits under the law. The
forum also reiterated its old demand for a special protection law to
safeguard the working journalists across the country.

Sunil Tiwari

Local media reports reveal that journalist Sunil Tiwari (35), who
worked for a Gwalior-based Hindi newspaper, was beaten, stabbed and
shot to death at MP’s Niwari locality on 22 July 2020 when he was
returning home in the evening hours. Sunil was attacked by a group of
criminals and he succumbed to serious injuries on the way to a nearby
hospital.

Sunil’s family claimed that he was targeted for reporting over
illogical activities of some influential persons. Few weeks back, he
even expressed apprehensions in his facebook account and intimated the
police about his fear, but they showed little seriousness over his
complaint citing that it was his personal disputes with those
individuals. Lately the police booked seven persons suspecting their
role in the murder.

“We lost journalist Vikram Joshi (40) on 22 July after he was
attacked by a group of goons in Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh). The goons
shot at him in front of his two minor daughters. By now, nine suspects
were arrested by the police,” said JFA president Rupam Barua and
secretary Nava Thakuria, adding that the robust Indian media
fraternity urgently needs the special protection law for scribes.
