The following is the press statement issued by the Delhi Union of Journalists on July 5.
THE DUJ is deeply grieved and shocked at the mysterious death of young Aajtak journalist Akshay Singh while investigating the Vyapam Scam in Madhya Pradesh. His sudden death cannot be isolated from the total number of 45 deaths of witnesses, accused and others connected to this Rs 2000 crore scam.
The government of Shivraj Singh Chouhan has much to answer for. Why is it unable to stem the tide of murders and suicides realted to the scam?
