Mumbai Press Club issues ultimatum to Tata Group

The Mumbai Press Club has given an ultimatum to Tata Sons to remove TOPS guards, not only from Bombay House, the headquarter of the Tata Group, but also from all Tata Group companies latest by 12pm today.

The move comes as yet another roadblock for the Tata Group, which is already in the news following the much-publicised ouster of Cyrus Mistry.

At least three news photographers were injured on Friday after they were beaten up by TOPS guards stationed at Bombay House. The guards brutally assaulted photo-journalists and reporters present there.

Atul Kamble, photo-journalist from Mid-day, was pinned down by four-five guards from TOPS, after which he was brutally punched, slapped and then pushed away from the building entrance in south Mumbai’s busy Fort area. The camera and other equipment of many photographers were also damaged by the security personnel.

Kamble, along with two photojournalists – Shantha Kumar from TOI and Arijit Sen from HT are still in hospital recovering from several injuries.

The Mumbai Press Club along with other organisations including Bombay News Photographers Association, Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangh, TV Journalists Association and BUJ have decided to lead a massive protest march on  November 8, Tuesday, from Mumbai Press Club to Bombay House in case Tata Sons fails to fire TOPS guards by noon today. According to the Mumbai Press Club, more agitations will continue in the coming days if their demand is not met.
