Several media orgainsations have demanded a probe into the death of journalist Shashikant Warishe, who succumbed to injuries sustained after his two-wheeler was hit by a car in coastal Ratnagiri district.

The organisations claimed that after Warishe wrote against local land dealer Pandharinath Ambekar, he crushed the scribe's bike under his car at a petrol pump in Ratnagiri district on Monday. Warishe succumbed to the injuries at a Kolhapur hospital on Tuesday.

Kiran Naik of Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Patrakar Parishad met Maharashtra Home Minister Devendra Fadnavis and sought a probe into Warishe's death.

Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangh and Mantralaya and Vidhimandal Vartahar Sangh also condemned the "murder" of Warishe, who wrote for Marathi newspapers Mahanagari Times.
