Indian Journalists Union (IJU) today condemned and demanded a high-level inquiry into the killing of an young journalist Raihan Nayum by unidentified miscreants in Assam's Dhubri district.
The IJU in a statement issued here expressed concern at the frequent attacks and killing of journalists in Assam and demanded a high-level inquiry into Nayum's killing.
