THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Senior Congress leader A K Anotny has come down heavily on lawyers who blocked media persons in court rooms recently.
Seeking action against lawyers who attacked media persons, Antony alleged that a section in lawyers’ community was indulging in criminal activities. “Any attempt to thwart the functioning of media is objectionable. It is shame that the issue continues to smoulder and is yet to be resolved,” he said.
Meanwhile, KPCC president V M Sudheeran said the police filing case against woman journalists could not be justified in any way. Police’ stand is not biased one. Police is siding a group of lawyers who are committing criminal offence,” he alleged.
