Jun 14, 2021 17:54 IST | By Editorji News Desk

A television journalist based in Uttar Pradesh’s Pratapgarh district was found dead under mysterious circumstances on Sunday night.

Just a day before his death, Sulabh Srivastava, who worked for ABP News and ABP Ganga, wrote to the Uttar Pradesh Police saying he felt threatened following his recent reportage of liquor mafias in the district.

Seeking protection, Srivastava had said he had been informed by sources that the liquor mafia was angry with him after the publication of his report and wanted to harm him or his family.

However, the police said that the journalist died in a 'motorcycle accident'.
