Veeraboina Yadagiri, Andhra Prabha
21 February 2004

Veeraboina Yadagiri, 35, correspondent for the Telugu-language daily Andhra Prabha in Medaka (in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh), was stabbed to death on 21 February 2004 by a man linked to a local trafficker in alcohol. Yadagiri had written a series of investigative pieces about the trafficker and the alleged involvement of local politicians in his activities.

Shortly before his death, he had filed a complaint with the police about death threats he had received. The Committee to Protect Journalists reported that the alleged killer, Lakshminarayana Goud, and three others were arrested.
