The Unwarranted CBI Raid on NDTV is Condemned by Academics and Artists

6.6.2017

 
SAHMAT unequivocally condemns the totally unwarranted CBI raids on the media group NDTV. While maintaining that all due procedures should be followed in cases of private complaints, we are of the opinion that searches even without a preliminary enquiry, as stated by NDTV, is nothing but an intimidatory tactic. By attacking the media, the present government is undermining freedom of the press, so essential for a democratic polity.
