Press Club Mumbai condemns the acid attack on Tarun Bharat reporter

The Press Club Mumbai strongly condemns the dastardly attack on Dinesh
Choudhary (40), his wife Arsana and teenage daughter Rashmi in Purna town of
Parbhani district in Maharashtra.

Mr. Choudhary is a reporter with the Tarun Bharat. He was attacked with acid
on Tuesday late night when he was at his home. In the acid attack he and his
wife and daughter got injured. The assailants ran away after throwing acid
on them.

The attackers are believed to be connected with the ruling political party
and one of them is President of Purna taluka Congress. Choudhary had been
writing against Guthka Mafia for his newspaper Tarun Bharat (Sholapur).
Guthka is banned in the state of Maharashtra.

We request Shri R R Patil, state home minister to take stern action against
the assailants and conspirators howsoever influential he is. The increasing
number of attacks on journalists in Maharashtra is a matter of serious
concern. These attacks are aimed to silence journalists from performing
their professional duties.

Thanks & regards,

Secretary
Press Club Mumbai
