Indian Women's Press Corps (IWPC) on Wednesday expressed deep shock and outrage at the killing of Doordarshan camera-person Achyutanand Sahu in a Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh a day ago and demanded investigation into the matter.

In a statement, it also asked the government to take adequate measures to prevent such incidents in the future.

"We express our deep condolences to the family of Mr Sahu and to the families of all those who died in the attack along with him," it said.

"We hope that the Union and state government will provide financial compensation and employment to the bereaved family of Mr Sahu that has suffered not only a great emotional loss but also lost an earning member of the family."

It is deplorable that journalists and innocent persons continue to be victims of collateral damage in conflict areas and situations, the IWPC said.

"Not long back, the media fraternity lost another of its colleagues, Shujaat Bukhari, who was shot dead in Srinagar," it said.
