Indian Police harassment of “The Hindu” continues – The Hindu

Police intimidation of The Hindu continued for the seventh consecutive day on Monday when they resolved to make the Resident Editor S. Nagesh Kumar run around the Punjagutta police station for as many times as possible.

As the Punjagutta police had declined to receive his bail sureties on Sunday, Mr. Nagesh Kumar, along with his advocates, visited the station on Monday evening to furnish the sureties in connection with a case filed in the police station on September 17, 2013. The case relates to a report published in The Hindu and other dailies about the visit to a godman by DGP V. Dinesh Reddy in the Old City.

The Investigation Officer (IO) Tirupathi Rao, took the sureties and handed over a notice asking the Resident Editor to appear for examination at 2 p.m on September 27 at the Punjagutta police station. However, within 30 minutes, the IO sent another notice to The Hindu office at Somajiguda.
