    hope it's just going to be an isolated incident! Law enforcement agencies need to find the culprits & punsih them. If they let this go.. then this trend will continue & is going to be very dangerous one!!

    It should be an isolated case as Janjaweed pointed out, because as you can see what task he was assigned to do! But the culprits should be routed out as soon as possible and presented before the court of justice.

    Poor journolist. Freedom of press is guaranteed in India ? Mumbai seems like a very violent unsafe city

    He could have been shot by a robber for all we know. No need to jump to conlusions.

    Besides, Mumbai is among the safest and most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Just try visiting Mumbai once, you'll fall in love with the city.

    Your robbers are very advanced in India. They ride on motorcyles with guns and dont seem to take anything from their victim. No thanks I will just stick with Karachi's robbers who use bicycles with fake plastic guns and run after they steal our paisa

    not so wise to draw conclusion based on one isolated incdent! yes.. if the trend continues, there will be a threat to freedom of press! At the moment.. india is far from it compared to other countries around her where freedom of press is not only targetted by the criminals, but also by the state & it's security agencies!!

    At least they weren't killed by the country's leading intelligence agency.

    I knew this reporter personally. He was a relation (though not a blood relation). He used to cover the crime and underworld scene in Mumbai. He had been threatened in the past by the underworld, and he has even been offered police protection in the past.

    The killers were underworld mafioso enforcing their warning.

    <mod edit: :lol: just explain it to him.>
