New Delhi, October 4: The Indian Women Press Corps (IWPC) on Sunday expressed shock over the attacks on jourlists in a village close to the capital where a mob lynched a man rumoured to have eaten beef. The IWPC said it condemned the manner in which jourlists, including women reporters, were intimidated, chased and attacked while covering the the lynching of a Muslim man. “The village women were instigated to attack the jourlists who were merely on duty doing their job,” it said in a statement. “That this should have happened in a place which witnessed a violent murder and that too a few kilometres from the tiol capital’s border is highly condemble,” it said. A mob dragged out Mohammed Akhlaq out of his house on the night of September 28 and killed him after rumours were spread that he killed a cow and ate beef. The family has denied the allegation, saying they only consumed mutton. (IANS)
