According to the statement of 16 academicians, 75-year-old senior journalist, writer and founding editor of independent media Newsclick Prabir Purkayastha has been arrested. He was imprisoned for six months. But no charge sheet was filed. His office and home were repeatedly searched for evidence of the crime for weeks. But nothing was found. The harmful effects of such actions against the freedom of media should be noticed by all.

“Others have been detained for longer periods,” the statement added. For example, those arrested in the (Bhima)-Koregaon case (except those who were released on bail by the court for various reasons including medical) have been in jail for more than five years without trial.' 16 Academics say many accused in Delhi riots have been imprisoned for long periods. This time is more than the maximum sentence for the charges brought against them.
