A group of journalists attacked by police in the state of Gujarat

first_imgNews April 9, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A group of journalists attacked by police in the state of Gujarat India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Organisation Follow the news on India IndiaAsia – Pacific In a letter sent to the interior minister of the state of Gujarat, Gordhan Zadaphia, Reporters sans frontières (Reporters Without Borders – RSF) denounced the attack on some twenty journalists by police in the state of Gujarat (west of the country). “After accusing the media of exaggerating the extent of the recent wave of inter-community violence in the state of Gujarat, the authorities of this state chose the most reprehensible way to act by preventing the press from doing its job,” said Robert Ménard, RSF general secretary. RSF called on the minister to provide the resources needed to the commission of enquiry so it could carry out its investigation completely and ensure that the appropriate sanctions be applied. According to information obtained by RSF, some twenty journalists and media professionals were attacked on 7 April 2002 by police officers at Gandhi Ashram, a quarter of Ahmedabad (state of Gujarat, west of the country). The journalists were covering two peace demonstrations that were disrupted by members of Gujarat Yuva Morcha, the youth section of the BJP (party in power). As the incidents began, Deputy Commisioner of Police V. M. Parghi told Pranav Joshi, a cameraman with the private television station NDTV, to stop filming. After Joshi asked why he was to stop, he was hit in the head and fell to the ground. Witnesses said that the police charged the journalists, threatening them with their guns. The incident ended about ten minutes later, after Shivanand Jha, head superintendent, who had done nothing until then, ordered his men to withdraw. Harsh Shah and Harshyal Pandya, respectively photographer with the daily Indian Express and journalist with the private television station ETV, were, like Pranav Joshi, seriously wounded during this attack. Pranav Joshi was hospitalized and placed in intensive care. A photographer with the Times of India was also hit in the ribs and kicked. Dhimant Purohit, correspondant for the Aaj Tak TV channel, Sanjeev Singh, NDTV reporter, Amit Dave, photographer with the Jansatta newspaper, Ashish Amin, reporter, Ketan Trivedi and Gautam Mehta, respectively journalist and photographer with the Gujarat Samachar newspaper, have also been beaten. Journalists filed a complaint against the deputy superintendent shortly after this incident. The minister of the interior for the state of Gujarat issued a communiqué during the night of 7 April, denying that the police officers attacked the press. But another official communiqué, issued several hours after that of the ministry, stated that a commission of enquiry was being set up and would be chaired by a retired judge of the High Court. The commission is to issue its report in three weeks. On 8 April, the Gujarat government announced that superintendents Shivanand Zha and V. M. Pargi were being reassigned, and that a criminal investigation was being launched. In the beginning of April 2002, Sonal Kellog, journalist with the Asian Age newspaper, was beaten up by Gujarat police while she was interviewing Muslim women who had complained of police atrocities.

Abby Goodrum finishes third and will receive a $25 gift certificate to The Dore.Gracy won the tiebreaker with Ferguson after missing six bowl picks. He predicted the number of points of the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl at 45 points and the lowest point total for a bowl at 21 points. Ferguson didn’t fill the tiebreaker points out so he finished second.When Gracy heard the news that he had won he was playing at an Oklahoma casino at the time.“Hell, I need to get back there and collect my winnings in Wellington, so I can lose it all down here,” Gracy said laughingly.Gracy said his winning formula wasn’t very scientific.“I just filled it out at the bar and turned it in,” Gracy said. “I didn’t do any research at all.”This year’s contest showed a majority of tallies in which people missed anywhere from 10 to 14 bowl games. The bowls that tripped up the most people were the Sugar Bowl with Oklahoma’s upset win over Alabama, the Orange Bowl with Clemson’s win over Ohio State, and the Fiesta Bowl with UCF’s upset over Baylor.Gracy missed two out of those three, but he did very well with the picks of the more minor bowls losing the Belk Bowl with North Carolina over Cincinnati and the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl with K-State over Michigan.The winning streak of Payton Baker who won both the bowl contest and the NCAA basketball tournament is over. He missed 13.Thanks for all who played in the contest. Our next contest will be the NCAA Basketball Tournament in March.last_img read more
