Concerned over arrest of TV journalist working for Republic Bangla: Editor’s Guild

The Editors Guild of India has expressed concern at the arrest of a TV journalist working with Republic Bangla from Sandeskhali of West Bengal on Monday. Mr Santu Pan was reporting live on television when he was whisked away by policemen says the statement issued by the Guild. His arrest while on duty is worrisome.

The statement says that while the police should certainly investigate if allegations have been levelled against the journalist, but to take him away while he is reporting is indeed a cause for concern.

The Editors Guild calls on the administration in West Bengal to conduct a speedy inquiry and ensure that no injustice is done to Mr Pan. The government must also do everything it can to protect freedom of the press says the statement issued by Anant Nath, President, Ruben Banerjee, General Secretary and K Ve Prasad, Treasurer.
