Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 22May 16, Protect journalists

Bihar’s Chief Minister recommending a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the murder of a journalist made for a very good read (‘Bihar CM urges CBI probe into murder of journalist’, Gulf News, May 17). The journalist’s death created a sensation in the Indian state of Bihar and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s order for the CBI probe, as per his family’s request, was a welcome decision. Journalists should be protected by the government as they are bringing truth to light in society, and taking big risks in their day to day work. Good move by Kumar.
