Political Agenda Behind Murder Of Uttar Pradesh Journalist?
TV journalist from Ballia was shot dead on Monday night.
The murder of a journalist with a Hindi news channel in Ballia, Uttar Pradesh has stirred up quite a storm as the accounts of the police do not seem to be matching what the victim’s family is saying. Ratan Singh was shot dead at around 09:00 p.m. at the Khetna village in the Phephana area of Ballia district. Quashing any accusations of the murder having to do anything with the journalist’s profession, the police have said that a property dispute was the reason behind the attack on him.
So far, the Uttar Pradesh Police have arrested six people in the case. The family of the victim, meanwhile, is opposing the police’s account of the incident. Members of his family, along with his friends, blocked a highway in protest against the police’s inaction. His distraught father said on Monday night, “There was no property dispute. Please go to the spot and see for yourself. The police is spinning the story.”
