Press Club weighs in on NDTV’s CBI raid

Adding its voice of concern against the CBI raids on the promoters of NDTV, the Press Club of India on Tuesday said it condemns any attempt to either intimidate the media or put curbs on its freedom. The Club also hoped that the facts of the case, filed by the CBI, will be placed in public domain and the investigating agency will not harass the media organisation or place any kind of hindrance in the news operations of the channel.

 

Cultural organisation SAHMAT too condemned the raids on the news channel.

Calling the raids unwarranted, 33 eminent and influential public intellectuals, Irfan Habib, Zoya Hasan, DN Jha, MK Raina and others said the raids were noting but an intimidatory tactic. By attacking the media, the present government is undermining the freedom of the press, so essential to democratic polity, they noted.
