The illegal arrest is an attack on individual freedom and the fourth pillar of democracy. The more serious charge is violation of the Supreme Court guidelines passed in the judgment of DK Basu vs State of West Bengal AIR 1997 SC 610.
Today its only Republic News but tomorrow everyone come in same scenario if speak against Maharashtra government. It's attack on fourth pillar of Democracy.
t this juncture, if SC turns away Republic Tv, then it will be tantamount to chopping wings of a free bird before it learns to fly high on its own. Republic Tv cannot be stopped. It should not be stopped by those who don’t like it. Period.
Naming a media channel during the press conference by none other but police commissioner of the state without having the name of the media channel in the FIR, shows the malafide intent of the commissioner to falsely engage and publicly defame a news channel.
