Journalist shot dead by Tripura State Rifles jawan

Tripura PCI takes suo-moto cognizance of journalist killed by TSR trooper

Harkumar Debbarna said the commandant of the counter-insurgency paramilitary force was arrested for conspiring to kill the scribe, Sudip Datta Bhaumick inside the battalion headquarters at Radhakishore Nagar on Tuesday.

In the second killing of a media-person in Tripura in two months, a journalist working with a Bengali newspaper was shot dead today allegedly by a constable of the Tripura State Rifles (TSR) following an altercation. He and Debbarma were produced on Wednesday morning before Chief Judical Magistrate Sharmishtha Mukherjee who passed the order.

The senior crime reporter had written 11 articles in daily Syandan Patrika against massive financial irregularities in the 2nd battalion of TSR.

“We have no faith on formation of SIT to probe into the pre-planned murder of Sudip Dutta Bhowmik as SIT has failed to live up to the peoples expectation.

Bhowmik was cremated at Battala and the final rites were attended by hundreds of journalists and other professionals.

The BJP has called for a dawn-to-dusk strike on November 23 in protest against the journalist's murder and demanding the resignation of the chief minister.




While speaking about the incident, President of Tripura Journalists Union Syed Sajjad Ali said that no one exactly knows what happened.

The bandh was given in protest against the murder of journalist Sudip Dutta Bhowmik.

The protesting journalists also burnt jackets which had been provided to them by the police for the objective of identification.

"The guild demands that Tripura chief minister Manik Sarkar have the assailants swiftly brought to justice", said a release by the Editors Guild of India.

"In a matter of two months, the journalist fraternity in the Northeast in general and Tripura in particular has lost two precious souls who have endeavoured to discharge their professional duties selflessly", a Club statement noted.
