Journalist Abhishek Saha and photojournalist Waseem Andrabi from the Srinagar Bureau of the Hindustan Times newspaper have won the prestigious Ramanth Goenka Awards for 2016.

Saha won the award in the “reporting from Jammu-Kashmir and the Northeast” category while Andrabi bagged it in the “photojournalism” category.

The awards will be presented to the winners by vice-president M Venkaiah Naidu in a ceremony in New Delhi on December 20.

Governor NN Vohra on Wednesday congratulated both Andrabi and Saha for bagging the award. “Their success would serve as a source of inspiration for the younger journalists in the state,” he said, and wished them “continuing high successes in their future careers.”
