Another journalist murdered in India

On November 21, Sudip Datta Bhaumik, a journalist at the Syandan Patrika newspaper and the local television channel Venguard, was shot dead by a soldier belonging to the Tripura State Rifles battalion. Sudip is believed to have being killed because of his ongoing investigations of financial irregularities within the battalion. Sudip is the second journalist to be murdered in that state in the last two months, and the third in India. Newspapers all across the state of Tripura ran blank editorial pages as a protest against the murder of their fellow journalist.
