Friends and colleagues of Delhi journalist Nirupama Pathak, murdered in her Jharkhand home April 29, will take out a march from the Press Club to the home ministry on Saturday to demand a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into her death.

The march is being organised by the Press Club of India and Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) alumni group under the banner "Justice for Nirupama".

The march will start at 5.30 pm from the Press Club and culminate at the North Block office of the home ministry where the protesters will submit a memorandum demanding a CBI inquiry into the case, organisers said.

Pathak, 23, had gone home in Koderma town of Jharkhand April 19 and was due to return April 28, but her reservation was cancelled. She was found dead April 29.

She passed out of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) last year, and was in a relationship with her former batchmate - which her parents reportedly did not approve of.

Pathak's family insists that she committed suicide. But the post-mortem examination revealed she was smothered to death and that she was 10-12 weeks pregnant.
