FIR Filed Against Editors Guild Members For Biased Report On Manipur Clashes


New Delhi: The Manipur government has filed an FIR against the president and three members of the Editors Guild of India (EGI) for incorrect and biased reports on media coverage of the present crisis in the State. Briefing media persons on Monday, Chief Minister N. Biren Singh came out strongly against the fact-finding team of the Editors Guild of India (EGI) and said that an FIR has been lodged against Seema Guha, Sanjay Kapoor, Bharat Bhushan, and the president of the Editors Guild of India Seema Mustafa, for submitting the false report.

Singh added that the fact-finding committee members of the EGI did not meet representatives from both communities (Meiteis and Kukis) and came to an ‘incorrect conclusion. He further said that the Union Home Minister Amit Shah had spoken in Parliament highlighting the complexity of the present crisis in the State. Despite this, some vested interest groups are sending their fact-finding teams which are issuing reports that could further fuel the crisis, he added.

The Chief Minister said that the Committee led by retired Chief Justices under the supervision of the Supreme Court and Central Government have already initiated their investigations to find the root cause of the issue.

On September 2, the Editors Guild of India released a report of its ‘Fact-Finding Mission on Media’s Reportage of the Ethnic Violence in Manipur’ which accused the State leadership of being partisan.
