Photojournalist Killed An Afghanistan To Be Buried At Jamia Millia Islamia Graveyard
Indian photojournalist Danish Siddiqui, who was killed in Afghanistan on Thursday while he was on an assignment for Reuters, will be laid to rest at the Jamia Millia Islamia graveyard.
Siddiqui’s family had requested the university that his body be buried in its graveyard.
“Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) Vice Chancellor accepted the request of the family of late photojournalist Danish Siddiqui to bury his body at the JMI graveyard meant exclusively for university employees, their spouses and minor child,” the university said in a statement.
Pulitzer Prize winner Siddiqui had studied at AJK Mass Communication Research Centre, where his father Akhtar Siddiqui was Dean of Faculty of Education.
