Indian journalist murdered, allegedly as revenge for an investigation which led to an officer's suspension

A suspended police officer and his brother have been arrested on suspicion of stabbing journalist Chennakesavulu to death late on Sunday August 9.

Chennakesavulu has recently exposed a policeman's involvement in an illegal gambling/tobacco smuggling ring which led to that officer's suspension. It is alleged that the officer developed a grudge from this which led to the stabbing, which occurred in the Indian state of Andhra Pardesh. Chennakesavulu was 35 years old.
