DUJ condemns Iftikhar Gilani’s detention
New Delhi, Feb 10: The Delhi Union of Journalists (DUJ) has condemned the police action of detaining the renowned journalist and well known writer, Iftikhar Gilani and the harassment to his family on Saturday.
In a statement a spokesman of DUJ said that this is not the first time that Gilani has been subjected to this sort of agony and trauma.
”On receiving information of Gilani’s illegal detention, the DUJ General Secretary, S K Pande tried to get in touch with the Delhi Police Commissioner and other concerned authorities, in vain. The Commissioner’s office informed that the Commissioner was unavailable, while other officers played hide and seek,” he said. “The Delhi Union of Journalists will be organizing a protest meeting in consultation with other journalists and press bodies in Delhi.”
The spokesman asked the government to take action against the police officials responsible for this “manifestly illegal act” of detaining Gilani.
