Journalist shot dead by unidentified assailants in Kanpur

Naveen Gupta, a Kanpur-based journalist, was shot dead by unidentified assailants on a bike in Bilhaur, Kanpur, on Thursday evening. Gupta succumbed to his injuries on the way to the hospital.

Gupta was a contributor for Hindustan, a leading Hindi daily. The incident comes days after a Tripura journalist, Sudip Datta Bhawmick, was allegedly shot dead by a Tripura State Rifles personnel at the headquarters of 2nd Battalion in RK Nagar, around 30 km from Agartala, on November 21.

Similarly, another journalist from Tripura, Santanu Bhaumik, was allegedly beaten to death by tribal party cadres  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 September 20.

Eminent journalist and activist Gauri Lankesh was shot dead outside her Bengaluru residence by unidentified men on a bike on September 5.

In the latest World Press Freedom ranking released in April, India was ranked 136 among 180 countries, indicating the dismal conditions in which Indian journalists work.
