Chandigarh– The Chandigarh Press Club condemns the murder of Senior journalist KJ Singh, who was also the member of the club, and his 92-year-old mother Gursharan Kaur.

Singh was found with his throat slit, while his mother, Gurcharan Kaur, is believed to have been strangled at their residence in Mohali today.
Singh was a former news editor of the Indian Express, The Tribune and The Times of India in Chandigarh.

The condolence meeting will be held at Chandigarh Press Club on Sunday at 1:30 pm.

Our practice so far has been to be non-conformist rather than flowing with the tide. We know this is not the easy path but then it has always been so. It is credibility and independence that are dear to us and epitomise our core values. We will question what is wrong and espouse what we feel is the right cause, at the same time fully conscious that both are relative terms but we will go by the interpretations are rooted in the collective consciousness of the people. At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
