Second Indian journo killed in two months   
A journalist was shot dead by a member of Tripura State Rifles (TSR) in Agartala of India on Tuesday evening. Sudip Dutta Bhowmik, 42, was a journalist of Agartala-based the daily Syandan Patrika and the News Vanguard portal. Speaking to the Dhaka Tribune, Syandan Patrika Editor Subal Kumar Dey said: “Sudip had gone to meet the commandant of the second TSR following an appointment from him. But after reaching the commandant’s office at Bodhjungnagar, he and personal security staff of the commandant got into a brawl. At one stage of the scuffle, the staff shot him to death.” The security staff, Nandu Reang, was arrested, said Inspector General of Police Arindam Nath, adding: “We’ve begun an investigation into this incident. Nothing else can be disclosed now. Sudip’s death comes as a shock to the media fraternity of Tripura against the backdrop of the murder of another journalist, Santanu Bhowmik, which took place on 20 September. Santanu was hacked to death by a coterie of miscreants as he went to cover an incident in Mandai of Jirania sub-division in the state. Meanwhile, Indian Journalists’ Union (IJU) strongly decried the incidents.
