Indian newspaper editor shot, in critical condition – Committee to Protect Journalists

New York, July 16, 2012–Authorities must immediately investigate Sunday’s attack on Tongam Rina, a journalist for a local Indian daily, and ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today. Rina was in critical condition today in a local hospital, according to news reports.

Unidentified gunmen opened fire on Rina, an associate editor of the English-language Arunachal Times, outside her newspaper office in Itanagar, capital of the Arunachal Pradesh state on the border with China, according to news reports. Rina, who is also president of the Arunanchal Pradesh Union of Working Journalists, was shot from behind at about 6 p.m., the reports said. The Hindustan Times reported that the journalist underwent surgery to remove a bullet from her stomach and may have suffered spinal damage.
