UAPA charge on journalist Shyam Meera Singh is an attempt to intimidate media, it must bewithdrawn: IWPC

The Indian Women’s Press Corps is shocked and dismayed by the act of Tripura Police of booking journalist Shyam Meera Singh under UAPA along with a 100 others.

Shyam Meera Singh has alleged that he has been booked for tweeting “Tripura is burning.” It is a journalist’s job to inform, to highlight and present true the picture of events. It is not the journalist’s job to please people in power. 
The charge of UAPA on Shyam Meera Singh is a clear attempt to silence journalists by misusing laws to intimidate them.

The IWPC demands that all such charges be withdrawn immediately and media be allowed to do its work freely.
