Kolkata: The Indian Journalists Association (IJA) on Sunday condemned the murder of a journalist in Bihar and appealed to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.

"The Indian Journalists' Association condemns the murder of journalist Dharmendra Singh, who became a victim at the hands of a stone-crusher mafia at Sasaram, the headquarters of Rohtas district in Bihar on Saturday," said IJA President Sekhar Sengupta.

"I appeal to the Bihar Chief Minister to ensure the criminals are nabbed and punished. If this is not done, I fear, crime will spread across the state borders," he said. The Hindi daily Dainik Bhaskar's correspondent was shot dead outside a roadside tea shop in Sasaram. The victim's family said he was threatened by stone-mining mafia.
