On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, several journalists in Delhi on Monday staged protests against the recent spate of violence against the media. The protestors formed a human chain to condemn the attack on journalists.
At least four journalists in Delhi and Noida have so far filed police complaints, saying they had received death threats on WhatsApp over the past two weeks. The police are yet to identify the perpetrators.
The journalists signed a petition to be sent to the Home Affairs Ministry, demanding a status report on the pending cases of violence against the media.
