Sinha took to twitter and said, "A journalist is hauled up for reporting alleged truth about malfunctioning and misuse of Aadhaar. Are we living in a Banana Republic?".

He tweeted, "What kind of "justice" is this? Is there only politics of vendetta? Even public is being victimised for coming out honestly for society and the nation".

Further, he congratulated the Editors Guild of India for condemning the FIR against The Tribune reporter Rachna Khaira for her article on how anonymous users accessed Aadhaar details and sold it for a fee.

"I congratulate the Editors' Guild of India for strongly taking up this matter and going deep into this. Hope, wish and pray that genuine authorities in the government and the respected SC in particular will take notice and come with swift corrective measures. Satyamev Jayate! Jai Hind!" Sinha said.

The Editors Guild of India on Sunday condemned UIDAI's action, saying it was designed to "browbeat a journalist."
