India: Journalist killed in Assam after writing about corruption

New York, January 10, 2006—The Committee to Protect Journalists calls on authorities in India's northeastern state of Assam to fully investigate the death of Prahlad Goala, who was apparently murdered on January 6. Goala had recently written a series of articles on corruption in the Assamese-language daily Asomiya Khabar that linked local forestry service officials to timber smuggling.

Local journalists told CPJ police arrested forest warden Zamman Jinnah in connection with the death. He was released on bail. Two other suspects, who are not forestry service employees, are still being held by police, the local journalists added.
