Imphal, Feb 11:

The Indian Journalists Union (IJU) expressed shocked and vehemently condemn the brutal murder of journalist Shashikant Warishe. According to news reports he was mowed down and crushed by a vehicle allegedly driven by Pandharinath Amberkar, a local land-dealer and accused in several land grab cases in the controversial Barsu refinery in the western Konkan region of Maharashtra, barely a few hours after he published a report in Marathi newspaper Mahanagari Times about his links with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
Warishe, aged 46, was working in Manager Times and wrote consistently against the polluting mega projects in Rajapur. On Monday, Feburary 6, 2023, he had published the report and referred to cases lodged against Amberkar.
IJU President and former member of Press Council of India Geetartha Pathak and IJU Secretary General and Vice President of International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) Sabina Inderjit strongly condemns the broad daylight murder of the journalist for his report based on facts. IJU leaders demands Maharashtra government to nab the murderer of Shashikant and give the culprit exemplary punishment. IJU also urges the government to declare a compensation of Rs 20 lakhs to Shashikant’s family.
