Arrest culprits in attack on photographers
The Mumbai Press Club strongly condemns brutal attack on news photographers at Tata House, Fort, Mumbai, and demands immediate arrest of security personnel of Tata House, who were involved in a shameful act of violence against the professionals from various media houses who were performing their duty on Friday (November 4, 2016) afternoon.
We understand that at least three photographers have sustained serious injuries and they are being treated at a government hospital. The Mumbai Press Club does not expect a corporate house like Tatas to indulge in violent practices against media persons, and demands explanation from the corporate authorities who allowed security personnel to take this extreme step.
The Mumbai Press Club extends its full support to the affected colleagues and their families. We will declare anytime soon the next course of action that needs to be taken for seeking justice in this matter. We have also expressed our serious concerns to the state’s political leadership and city police top brass, and expect them to deliver justice.
