Journalists in Uttar Pradesh’s Sonbhadra district took out a candle march in solidarity with journalist Pawan Jaiswal. The exact date of the march is unknown.

In August, Jaiswal exposed a primary government school that was serving its students chapati and salt for mid-day meals. The report attracted much attention, and later, a case of criminal conspiracy was filed against the reporter for attempting to “defame the Uttar Pradesh government”.
