The News Broadcasters Association (NBA) on Saturday, strongly condemned the attack on journalists by unidentified persons in Ahmedabad and demanded immediate arrest of those responsible behind it.
A group of journalists and cameramen were attacked by unidentified persons when they were covering 'Ahmedabad bandh' following the mysterious death of two children in the ashram of a religious guru.
More than 15 journalists were injured during the incident.
"Preventing journalists from performing their duties were violations of the freedom enshrined in and guaranteed by the Constitution," NBA President G Krishnan said in a statement.
He also urged the Gujarat government to ensure a congenial atmosphere for allowing journalists to perform their duties in a free and fearless manner.
