Adrienne Batra, Toronto Sun newspaper’s editor-in-chief, received the “Best Journalist Award” on Friday at ‘Parvasi Awards’ organised by the Parvasi Media Group.

The Parvasi Media Group established in 2005 to honor the accomplishments of successful Punjabi Canadians in various fields.

“The Indo-Canadian community has thrived in so many professions and it’s humbling to be acknowledged in the field of journalism,” Batra was quoted as saying by Toronto Sun.

Batra served as a lieutenant in the Canadian armed forces before joining the Toronto Sun in 2011.

Former Indian athlete Milkha Singh was the guest of honor at the ‘Parvasi Awards’.
