Journalists were assaulted in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, both of which are Congress-ruled states. The assault on journalists is slammed by the BJP government, calling it an emergency model.
Many of the big media houses in Rajasthan have been sent a legal notice from the police, asking them to reveal their sources. This comes in light of the fact that the phones were being tapped by the Ashok Gehlot government during the Rajasthan political fiasco. The Ashok Gehlot government is muzzling the press by sending them legal notice and also registering FIR against them.
On the other hand, Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel has stated that earlier journalists were being killed as well during their investigation but does not say much on the cases that are being filed now.
