Journalist murdered at newspaper office in Gujarat

Ahmedabad, August 23

A journalist was allegedly murdered by some unidentified people at the office of a newspaper he was working with in Gujarat’s Junagadh district.

 

Kishore Dave (53) was stabbed to death at the office of a Gujarati daily at Vanjari Chowk around 9.30 pm on Monday, Superintendent of Police Nilesh Jajadiya said.

 

Dave was the bureau chief of the newspaper which is published from Rajkot, he said.

 

“He was stabbed six to seven times with a knife. Personal enmity appears to be the reason behind the murder,” Jajadiya said.

 

Dave’s body was sent for post-mortem and police have launched a probe into the murder after registering a case against unidentified assailants at Junagadh B division police station. PTI
