Deceased journalist Danish Siddiqui, 3 other Indians win Pulitzer Prize

Siddiqui had previously won the Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the Rohingya crisis in 2018.

Deceased Indian journalist Danish Siddiqui has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize in the feature photography category for his images capturing the heavy toll the second wave of Covid-19 exacted on India.

One such photograph captured from a height by Siddiqui shows multiple pyres burning at a crematorium in New Delhi as families ran out of space to lay their loved ones to rest.

3 other Indians --- Adnan Abidi, Sanna Irshad Mattoo, Amit Dave --- who were part of the Reuters crew that covered Covid-19 pandemic in India have been jointly awarded the Pulitzer.

Siddiqui had previously won the Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the Rohingya crisis in 2018.

Danish Siddiqui was killed in July last year while covering the Taliban's take over of Afghanistan. He was reportedly died in crossfiring during clashes between Taliban and Afghan forces. Some media reports later however claimed that he was murdered by the Taliban.

Among the other Pulitzer Prize awards, the US pullout and resurrection of the Taliban's grip on Afghanistan permeated across categories, with The New York Times winning in the international reporting category for reporting challenging official accounts of civilian deaths from US airstrikes in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Washington Post, meanwhile, won the Pulitzer Prize in public service journalism Monday for its coverage of the Jan 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, an attack on democracy that was a shocking start to a tumultuous year that also saw the end of the United States' longest war, in Afghanistan.
