Ahmedabad: A senior journalist was found murdered on Monday night, stabbed repeatedly in the chest while at work in his office in Junagadh in Saurashtra region of Gujarat.
Kishore Dave, bureau chief of Gujarati newspaper Jai Hind, was stabbed at 9 pm when he was writing a story, say reports.
Dave was alone in the office when attacked. His body was discovered by an office assistant later. There are no CCTV cameras at the office and hence footage of the incident could not be captured.
A police case has been registered but it does not mention any suspects, say reports.
However, relatives of 53-year-old Dave have alleged that the son of a local politician is responsible for the murder. According to them, Dave had reported on a case of alleged sexual harassment against the politician’s son about a year ago, and the journalist had been granted bail after a cyber crime case was filed against him.
