Amid the controversy about the exact figures of Covid-19 deaths in India, four photojournalists have won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for 2022 for their photography of Covid deaths in India. It also includes slain photographer Danish Siddiqui, killed by the Taliban militants while covering conflicts between Afghanistan and Taliban forces in 2021. All four lensmen work for the Reuters agency.
While three other photographers – Adnan Abidi, Amit Dave, and Sanna Irshad Mattoo have got it for the first time, it was second for Danish Siddiqui, posthumously.
The 38-year-old Siddiqui had won the Pulitzer in 2018 itself.
