Protest in Delhi over journalist’s death

Lucknow, June 15 (IANS) Journalists will on Monday protest in New Delhi seeking justice for the family of scribe Jagendra Singh who was allegedly set on fire by policemen and the henchmen of Uttar Pradesh Minister Ram Murti Verma.

Officer bearers of the Indian Federation of Working Journalists told IANS that the protest at Jantar Mantar was against the Akhilesh Yadav government in the state. They accused the Samajwadi Party government of not against the minister.
