A matter of Concern
On 30th June 2018, Maharashtra Police reached Press Club Of India, Delhi and asked for hall booking records and whereabouts of one of its members Vishwadeepak, a bonafide journalist working with English weekly National Herald as principal correspondent. The Police claimed that the scribe had endorsed hall booking for a press conference called in defense of jailed DU teacher GN Saibaba. We fear that the journalist may be detained or arrested anytime.
