Watch: Republic TV journalist misbehaves with Pradyuman’s father to get exclusive interview



Republic-TV journlist

Gurugram, Sept 13: What we can call the situation when journalists cross their limitations and misbehave with any person to get the exclusive leads.

Adding one more feather to its cap of controversies, a Republic TV journalist was caught on camera while trying to get the interview of Vishal Thakur, father of 7-year-old Pradyuman Thakur who was brutally killed inside the toilet of Ryan International School.

The reporter allegedly misbehaved with Vishal Thakur during the interview that went live on TV on Monday.

According to Times Now, Thakur had decided to give a live interview to their channel first. Times Now is Arnab Goswami’s erstwhile TV channel where he used to host its prime time show before he launched Republic TV.

Soon the room turned into a boxing ring, with representatives of two different media houses tussled to get Thakur’s bites.

First, the Republic TV guest coordinator (identified as the woman dressed in black) appearing to be agitatedly talking on her phone, suddenly removed the lapel mic pinned to Thakur.

The Times Now reporter, dressed in grey, flung herself onto the woman in black, physically holding her back, in an attempt to let the interview run smoothly. But they were unaware that the entire action-adventure was aired live on TV.

On Wednesday, the Bombay High Court granted interim protection to Ryan International Group of Institutions’ founders Augustine Pinto and Grace Pinto from arrest till September 13. Meanwhile, the two arrested top officials of the Gurugram school were remanded to two-day police custody.

BJP leader Lal Singh threatens journalists,draws sharp rebuke from Congress, NC



New Delhi, June 23: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Choudhary Lal Singh on Friday threatened journalists to ‘fall in line & draw a line’ over their reporting on the Kathua rape and murder case,, with an apparent reference to the assassination of Kashmir journalist Shujaat Bukhari.

Singh’s controversial reference that if media persons won’t mend the ways they will meet the fate of journalist Shujaat Bukhari drew sharp rebuke from Congress party who asked if BJP leaders have some information off the assassination of Kashmir journalist Shujaat Bukhari.

Singh’s outrageous remarks were condemned by both the Congress party and  former chief minister and National Congress leader Omar Abdullah.

Referring to Kathua case, Singh told a press conference in Jammu on Friday that Kashmiri journalists had created a “wrong atmosphere” there.

Shujaat’s death is now being used by BJP as a tool to threaten other journalists.

Singh was the forest minister in the previous PDP-BJP government and was asked to resign from the cabinet in April after he participated in a rally in support of the accused in the rape and murder of an 8-year-old Muslim tribal girl in Kathua.

“Now I will tell Kashmiri journalists to draw a line on the journalism you do and how you have to live. Do you have to live like what happened to Basharat, so that such a situation emerges?,” Singh said in an apparent reference to Rising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bukhari who was assassinated by gunmen outside his office on June 14.

“So mend your ways and draw a line, so that this brotherhood remains intact and there is progress,” Singh said.

“Dear journalists, your colleagues in Kashmir just got threatened by a @BJP4India MLA. It seems Shujaat’s death is now a tool for goons to use to threaten other journalists,” Omar tweeted.


Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala questioned that it shows BJP leaders have some information  of the assassination of Kashmir journalist Shujaat Bukhari.
“Shocking & reprehensible! BJP J&K MLA, Lal Singh openly threatens journalists to ‘fall in line & draw a line’. He horrifically says that otherwise they will meet the fate of Shujat Bukhari by naming his brother. Does BJP leaders have some special knowledge of the assassination?”, Surjewala tweeted.




Shujaat Bukhari’s brother Basharat Bukhari was law and parliamentary affairs minister in the PDP-BJP government before BJP withdrew from the alliance.
