INS decries CBI
action against
Sakshi group
NEW DELHI: The Indian Newspaper Society (INS) has condemned
the freezing of the
bank accounts of the Sakshi
group based in Andhra Pradesh by the Central Bureau
of Investigation (CBO.
INS president Ashish Bag-
ga
said in a statement
here
that the action could lead to
abrupt stoppage of publica-
tion
of the
newspaper and
render over 10,000 employjobless.
ees
The CHI's action had come
at a time when Andhra Pradesh is in election mode, a
period when free dissemination of news and views was
necessary to aid the democratic process, he added.
The INS viewed the CBI's
action as a threat to the freedom of the press, he said.
This
ess
would scuttle
the proc-
of opinion-building in the
build-up to the by-elections
(scheduled for June 12). He
asked the Unioa government
and
the
cerned
authorities
to stop taking
steps that could
conany
derail the
freedom of speech and curtail
right
citizens'
to
information.
The Sakshi
group runs a
Telugu newspaper with multiple
editions, and a televi-
sion channel.
