Bengaluru, Apr 21: Journalists from IT city on Thursday carried out a protest condemning police brutality unleashed against a TV journalist Sharan Gurikar while he was reporting furious EPF protest by Garment workers.
Scribes from diverse media houses gathered at Bengaluru Press Club to stage the protest. Journalists, however for a week display symbolic agitation by wearing a black band around their hands.
It could be recalled that on Tuesday, Apr 19 an Inspector from Hulimavu jurisdiction and his subordinates allegedly assaulted a TV channel reporter Sharan Gurikar for reporting EPF protest.
Press Club President R Shridhar and Secretary, S Shivaprasad said the opinion generated from the gathering will be passed on to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. A stern action against the offenders will also be sought from the CM. Many journalism associations present at the venue condemned the dastardly act.
