THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A journalist was killed in a road accident in Kerala’s capital Thiruvananthapuram late last night when a car driven by an IAS officer rammed his motorcycle, killing him on the spot.
K Muhammed Basheer, 35, was the Thiruvananthapuram bureau chief of Malayalam daily Siraj.
The police said that apart from IAS officer Sreeram Venkitaraman, a woman was also in the blue Volkswagen.”There were conflicting statements. We have now confirmed from independent witnesses that Sreeram Venkitaraman was driving the vehicle,” Thiruvananthapuram police chief Dhinendra Kashyap told news agency.
The officer’s blood samples have been taken for testing.
Kerala Union of Working Journalists (KUWJ) has demanded a proper and truthful investigation in the case. Senior police officer Sanjay Kumar Gurudin told the media personnel that the probe would be done scientifically.
