    Tripura: Father of slain journalist Santanu Bhowmik demands CBI probe

    Tripura government earlier constituted a five-member SIT to probe the murder of Santanu Bhowmik.

    On September 20, Santanu Bhowmik, 27, who worked with a local television channel, was attacked with sharp cutting weapons while covering a road blockade agitation of the IPFT, which is demanding a separate tribal State called Tipraland.

    Killing of Tripura journalist Santanu Bhowmick was however condemned by media collectives, including the Editors Guild of India, saying it was a "reckless" and "inhuman" act to silence the voice of the free press.

    A large number of journalists from all segments of media gathered at the hospital to demand the immediate arrest of the murderers.
