DUJ Condemns Targetting of Journos

The Delhi Union of Journalists (DUJ) condemns the move by the
Gujarat Police to
arrest Teesta Setalvad and her husband, Javed Anand, senior
journalists and
activists. However, their arrest has been stayed upto February 19
by the Supreme

The Gujarat Police have launched a witch-hunt against Teesta
Setalvad, Editor of
Communalism Combat. The magazine has been expounding the cause of
victims of the Gujarat pogroms of 2002.

The DUJ General Secretary, S K Pande
feels that a continuous targeting of the journalist family has
been continuing through a variety of machinations. It is of the
view that the case should be withdrawn. The DUJ has further
appealed to all fraternal bodies at  the local and national
level to protest against the witch-hunt and targeted framing of
cases against the two senior journalists.

(S K Pande)

General Secretary
