The death of young journalist Raman Kashyap in the violence at a farmers’ protest in Lakhimpur Kheri of Uttar Pradesh has, once again, laid bare the perils of being regional stringers and freelancers.

On October 3, Kashyap was at the protest site to cover the unfolding story for a private news channel. It promised to fetch him a few hundred rupe­­es. He died in the melee, after a vehicle, allegedly own­ed by the son of Union minister of state for home Ajay Kumar Mishra, ran over the crowd from behind.
