Observing the 1st death anniversary of journalist Parag Bhuyan with protest
TINSUKIA: Observing the 1st death anniversary of journalist Parag Bhuyan with protest, the Kakopathar Press Club (KPC) on Friday expressed dismay over the non-publication of CID's report to ascertain the cause of his death who died due to a road accident on November 12, 2020 under mysterious circumstances.

His unusual death led to a statewide protest by journalists' fraternity even reacted by a UN member.
The anniversary-cum- protest programme was held at Kakopathar Hindi School with Bijoy Dutta, president of KPC, in the chair. Among those who addressed the gathering was Monuranjan Neog, president & Dwipen Lohokor, secretary i/c of APCU Tinsukia district committee, Bikash Talukdar, secretary, AJYCP, Kakopathar Ancholik committee, Ancholik leaders of AASU and AMSU besides others.
