Bihar: Local journalist Pankaj Mishra shot at, condition critical
Two days after senior journalist Gauri Lankesh was murdered at her home in Bengaluru, Pankaj Mishra, a journalist with Hindi Daily 'Rashtriya Sahara', was shot at in Bihar's Arwal. He has sustained severe injuries and has been shifted to a Patna hospital. Mishra was attacked while he was on his way home from a bank. Two bullets hit his back. His condition is critical.
Cops say one of the two assailants who attacked him have been arrested. Prima facie the motive seems to be robbery: Mishra was carrying Rs. 1L in cash.
