Agartala (Tripura) [India], Nov 23 (ANI): As some of Tripura newspapers left editorials blank to mark their protest against the killing of journalist Sudip Datta Bhowmik, Editor of the Tripura Times said that the killing of two journalists within two months is a matter of serious concern.
"As far as institutional protest is concerned, we have left the editorial page blank for today's edition of our newspaper. Murder of two journalists within two months is a matter of serious concern," Manas Paul, Editor, Tripura Times told ANI.
Sujit Chakraborty, eminent journalist and ex-secretary of Agartala Press Club, said, "The killing of Sudip didn't get prominent coverage by the national media. Except some small news items, they ignored the heinous crime. Had it happened in major cities, it would have got wider publicity by both national print and electronic media."
"Sudip's murder was a cold-blooded killing. He was killed inside the Circle Officer's room," Bhowmik's brother told ANI.
