Nepalese TV executive shot dead in capital
Monday 08 February 2010
A television executive who owned Nepal's first cable TV company was shot dead in a busy neighbourhood in the capital yesterday.
Jamin Shah was gunned down by two men on a motorcycle who targeted his car on a busy road. The men escaped after firing at Shah and his driver, said police official Bigyan Sharma.
Shah was rushed to hospital, where he later died. He had been shot in the chest. Shah's driver was being treated for leg injuries.
Shah owned Channel Nepal, a cable news channel, and Space Time Networks, the country's first cable television company. He briefly operated daily newspapers in both English and Nepali, which he shut down for financial reasons.
Police said they had no suspects in the killing.
