Focus TV offers job to Widow of journo killed in 2001
<img style="float:left; margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px;" src=""/>On the eighth anniversary of the terror attack on the Indian parliament, a television channel, Focus TV, has offered a job to the widow of a video journalist who was killed while covering the incident.

Vikram Bisht, a cameraman with Asia News International, was killed in the shooting by the terrorists in the Parliament House on this day in 2001.

On the eve of the attack, Focus TV, Asia's first women's channel, interviewed the cameraman's widow Sunita Bisht, who narrated how she has been struggling to make a living and educating her two children.

Hearing her plight, Sunita was offered a job by the channel's management.

"I am very happy that Focus TV has offered me a job, and I am happy that I can be associated with a media organization just as my late husband was," said Sunita.

The compensation announced by the government is yet to reach her, she said.

On Friday, the Lok Sabha paid tribute to those who were killed in the audacious attack.

Five heavily armed gunmen, said to be Pakistanis -- Islamabad denies the charge -- stormed parliament and opened indiscriminate fire, killing nine people instantly.

The victims included five Delhi Police personnel, a woman constable of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), two parliament security attendants and a gardener. A journalist who was injured died later.

All five terrorists were shot dead.
