Shocking! Jaipur: Journalist dies after being allegedly attacked for resisting molestation of female colleague

In a shocking incident a video journalist died after being allegedly attacked for resisting molestation of female colleague in Jaipur. The journalist was grievously injured in an attack by a group of assailants, police said on Thursday.

He got into fight 5-7 days ago. A case is lodged under section 307 IPC. We have got some clues to identify attackers based on CCTV. They'll be soon caught," said the police.

Abhishek Soni along with a woman friend had stopped at a roadside eatery on the night of December 8. He got into an argument with the accused, who were already present at the spot, after they started harassing the woman, the police said.

The accused hit him with an iron road. The woman was also injured in the incident, they said.

"They (Soni and his friend) were admitted to a hospital where Soni died on Wednesday night," SHO of Mansarover police station Rameshwar Lal said.

The woman was discharged after primary treatment, he said.

Lal said one of the accused -- Shankar Chaudhary, a resident of Phagi town -- has already been arrested. The remaining two, identified as Kanaram Jat and Surendra Jat, are absconding and searches are being carried out to nab them.
