Mamta Banerjee govt files FIR against Zee News editor Sudhir Chaudhary

Sudhir Chaudhary, Senior Editor at Zee News, in a Facebook post, has claimed that the Mamta Banerjee govt of West Bengal has filed an FIR against him along with Zee News reporter Pooja Mehta and cameraperson Tanmay Mukherjee.


“It's another low point in our democracy to see a democratically elected govt using police force to curb media in an effort to suppress uncomfortable facts and reality. When you can't manage media, use the state machinery to conquer the media only to conceal the failures of your administration. It shows the intolerance of a chief minister who is using the state machinery as her personal fiefdom and acting like a feudal lord,” wrote Chaudhary in the post.

He also tweeted about the incident:

 

 

On December 13, clashes between two communities erupted following Milad-ul-Nabi celebrations in Dhulagarh.
