Journalist Pooja Tiwari death: NUJ demands CBI probe
New Delhi, May 9: The National Union of Journalists today took out a candlelight march at Jantar Mantar here demanding a CBI probe into the "mysterious" death of a woman journalist in Faridbad last week.
Police said 28-year-old Pooja Tiwari committed suicide by jumping from the fifth floor of a building, but her family suspects foul play in her death and has demanded that a CBI probe be ordered into it, it said. "Her family and friends are not satisfied with the ongoing probe in the case.
She was found dead under mysterious circumstances on the intervening night of May 1 and May 2. "They claim she cannot commit suicide as she was a very strong person who had the courage to fight all odds. Interestingly, Pooja spoke with her parents and friends hours before the ill-fated incident took place and they say she was not depressed," an NUJ statement said.
