Bengaluru journalists condemn attack against TV scribe Gurikar

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.
