Guwahati: A huge rally was organized in Guwahati, Assam by the Sachetan Nagarik Manch, Axom from Rajgarh Bihutoli to Rajiv Bhawan demanding the immediate release of journalist Arnab Goswami.
Almost 2500 people participated in the rally.
Hundreds of people led by film stars, singers, cultural activists, acamedics and xatradhikars under Sachetan Nagarik Mancha joined the protest march.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Gauhati Press Club (GPC) also condemned the arrest of Editor-in-Chief of Republic TV Network Mr Arnab Goswami.
Reopening of an old case of abetment to suicide that was closed for want of evidence, and arresting Editor In Chief of Republic TV Network in connection with the said case is very unfortunate. The manner in which Mr Goswami was arrested clearly leaves room for suspicion towards witch-hunting, claimed the members of the GPC executive committee.
Members of the GPC executive committee while condemning the arrest of journo Goswami urged the Maharashtra Government and the Mumbai Police to ensure that the senior journalist is treated fairly without a prejudiced mindset.
