Press Statement- June 10, 2022
The Indian Women’s Press Corps is shocked and concerned about the arbitrary manner in which an FIR has been filed against our member and senior journalist Saba Naqvi for her posts.
It appears that select people are being targeted for their views which is very unfortunate. Time and again, we have seen that it leads to undue harassment of individuals on a subjective basis.
We expect the legal system to be more judicious in the execution of its powers.
In the present context we demand that the FIR be withdrawn by the Delhi Police and the process initiated to get it quashed in court.
