Killed Indian photojournalist Danish Siddiqui is buried in India-News

The Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist was buried in the cemetery of Jamia Milia Islamia University.

Pulitzer Prize-winning news photographer Danish Siddiqui was buried in the Indian capital on Sunday. Two days ago, he was reporting that Afghan security forces and the Taliban were killed in a battle near the border with Pakistan.

Reuters said on Friday that Siddiqui was a Reuters Indian national. At the time of his death, he was buried in the Afghan special forces in Kandahar, the former Taliban fortress in Afghanistan.

The body of the 38-year-old man arrived in New Delhi by plane from Afghanistan on Sunday night. His coffin was taken to his home, where hundreds of friends and media colleagues gathered.

According to an AFP photographer on the campus, an estimated 500 people later offered their final prayers for Siddiq at Jamia Milia Islamic University, Delhi’s alma mater.

Later, he was buried in the cemetery on the university campus.

After news of Siddiqui’s death came out, people mourned him in India.

On Saturday, the reporter held a candlelight vigil in several cities in India.

Siddiqui is a member of a team that shared the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Photography for documenting the Rohingya refugee crisis.

The agency said that since he started working for Reuters in 2010, he has also reported on the Iraq war, Hong Kong protests and the Nepal earthquake.

For a long time, Afghanistan has been one of the most dangerous countries for news media in the world.

Since the Taliban and Washington signed an agreement to pave the way for the withdrawal of foreign troops in February 2020, several journalists, including women, have been killed in targeted attacks.
