‘Tehelka’ walks away with IPI award for 2010

Tehelka magazine has won the International Press Institute (IPI) India award for excellence in journalism for 2010, for its expose of the killing of a Manipur resident, Chongkam Sanjit, in cold blood by the northeastern State’s commandos. The report, by then correspondent Teresa Rehman, prompted a central bureau of investigation (CBI) investigation, which went on to charge nine policemen for the murder.
