Vikram Singh Bisht, Asian News International
9 January 2003

Bhist, a cameraman with the Asian News International agency who was wounded and permanently paralysed in a 2001 attack on the Indian parliament, died of internal bleeding on 9 January 2003 after falling out of his wheelchair.

Five gunmen, probably from Pakistan, attacked parliament on 13 December 2001, killing eight policemen and a gardener before being shot dead by security forces. Bhist, who was covering the episode, was hit in the spine and hospitalised at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences until November 2002.

The following month, three Muslims from Indian Kashmir were sentenced to death for planning the attack.
