Reporters Without Orders Ep 240: Who killed Ankita Bhandari?

A reporters’ podcast about what made news and what shouldn’t have.

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week host Basant Kumar is joined by Newslaundry’s Akanksha Kumar.

Akanksha discusses her report about two Muslim men in Uttar Pradesh who were arrested last year and accused of having links with Al Qaeda. “The only evidence in this case is digital and it is normal messages and calls,” she says.

She also discusses her report about a Dainik Jagran journalist who was allegedly assaulted for reporting on the functioning of Lakhimpur Kheri municipal corporation chairperson Nirupama Bajpai and her husband.

Basant talks about his report on Pulkit Arya, who is accused of killing 19-year-old hotel receptionist Ankita Bhandari in Uttarakhand. Basant details Pulkit’s life and history.

This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.

Tune in.
