 The Shillong Press Club expresses deep grief and angst over yet another brutal assassination of a comrade.

Young Shantanu Bhowmik working with Din Raat channel in Agartala was brutally murdered by a rowdy mob allegedly pledging allegiance to the Indigenous Peoples’ Front of Tripura (IPFT) while he was discharging his professional duties in covering an agitation programme of this very same organisation.

While extending deepest sympathies to the loved ones of late Shantanu, the Shillong Press Club iterates its demand that such crimes against members of the fourth estate be addressed in the strongest of measures by the powers that be at the earliest.

Shillong Press Club also seeks exemplary punishment to the four IPFT members arrested by Tripura police in this connection and exhorts all members of the journalist fraternity to keep the flag flying by not cowing down to cowards and criminals but rather continue to fulfil the onerous responsibility bestowed upon them as members of the fourth estate.
