BEA condemns the murder of journalist Shantanu Bhowmik 

Broadcast Editors' Association (BEA) condemned the murder of journalist Shantanu Bhowmik in the state of Tripura, while covering an agitation. President Supriya Prasad and General Secretary Ajit Anjum said that it was very unfortunate that a journalist lost his life while discharging his duty. 


“Such attacks, just days after a senior journalist Gauri Lankesh was killed in Bangalore, prove that disruptive forces are out to curb the freedom of press. BEA demands the state government to take prompt action and bring the guilty to book. We also demand that both state and central governments should take appropriate steps to safeguard the life of media professional across the country. Our thoughts and prayers are with Shantanu's family, friends and colleagues,” a statement by BEA said.


Shantanu Bhowmik, 28, who use to work with Dinraat, a local television news channel, was allegedly beaten to death by tribal party cadres in Tripura while he was covering a clash between the Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) and the Tripura Rajaer Upajati Ganamukti Parishad (TRUGP) in Mandai on Wednesday. According to an Indian Express report, the mob later dragged Bhowmik's body and hid it behind the local stadium.


The Press Club of India is organising a condolence and protest meet against the murder of Shantanu Bhowmik on Friday.
