‘Cho Ramaswamy’s behaviour isn’t bizarre’

A clarification in The Hindu on April 20, 2007:

The heading of a box item accompanying a story —on the shootings at Virginia Tech University, U.S. (“Embassy staff meet Indian students”, April 19, 2007, page 1)—was “Cho’s behaviour was bizarre”. Though it was a box in an item on the killings in the U.S and had a Blacksburg dateline, a number of readers thought it was about journalist and editor Cho Ramaswamy. They felt that the heading could have been different and say “Gunman’s behaviour was bizarre” would have been more apt. The heading has to be seen in relation to the content and the dateline.
