A journalist reporting on #CoronavirusOutbreak is a front line warrior. It’s painful to hear that journalist Pankaj Kulshreshtha is no longer with us. We lost Pankaj ji to #Covid_19. May his soul rest in peace.— Syed Shahnawaz Hussain (@ShahnawazBJP) May 7, 2020

Soft spoken, very friendly senior @JagranNews #Agra journalist Pankaj Kulshrestha, no more. He died of #Covid_19. He was admitted to Agra medical college some days back, was put on ventilator yesterday. Preparation was on to shift him to #Lucknow PGI. Om shanti. #COVIDWarriors— Ashok Malik (@ashokmalik) May 7, 2020
Really sad news. Also sad that there will never be a true appreciation of what several journalists are doing in terms of bringing important stories to light, only the “halla brigade” will be seen as representative of us and not those who are also putting their lives on the line. https://t.co/D3kAfAM7Gp— Nistula Hebbar (@nistula) May 8, 2020
A journalist friend from Lucknow informed that his wife is also hospitalised. Let's pray for her recovery. 🙏 https://t.co/H6IS83dDFT— Pankaj Shankar पंकज शंकर (@pankaj_shankar) May 8, 2020
