Tripura journalist Shantanu Bhowmik brutally killed while reporting on tribal clashes



A journalist 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.



 



Shantanu Bhowmik, 28, who use to work with Dinraat, a local television news channel, was first hit on the legs with sticks due to which he fell down on the road and then, he was hit on the head. According to an Indian Express report, the mob later dragged Bhowmik's body and hid it behind the local stadium.



 



According to reports, four people have already been arrested in connection with the death.



 



While the Agartala Press Club and Tripura Working Journalists’ Association (TWJA) are organising a silent funeral procession today, the Tripura Journalists’



Union (TJU) has demanded a CBI inquiry into the incident.
