New Delhi Police Manhandles Photojournalist
Anushree Fadnavis, a photojournalist with Hindustan Times, was physically assaulted by the Delhi police along with two other reporters, while covering a march by Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students and teachers to Parliament to urge to meet several demands including academic freedom on March 23. The police tried to stop the march near the Safdarjung flyover with a lathi charge, and used water cannons on the marchers, as well as the journalists. After ceasing the use of water cannons, Vidyadhar Singh, Delhi Cantonment station house officer, attacked the journalists in the service lane of Brigadier Hoshiar Singh Marg. Fadnavis was photographing a student being kicked on the ground when female officers converged on her and snatched away her camera. A video capturing the struggle was uploaded online, after which the police apologised. They also suspended a woman constable and a male head constable. It has been noted by many that the police’s aggressiveness towards journalists has increased in recent times.
Egyptian Photojournalist Faces Death Penalty
Mahmoud Abu Zeid, alias Shawkan, is an Egyptian photojournalist who was apprehended on August 14th, 2013, while covering the anti-government demonstration in Cairo.

Zeid, along with more than 700 people, has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and membership with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian prosecutors have appealed for ‘maximum penalty’, that is death by hanging for all the accused. He was held without any trial or charges till March 2016. The UN Working Group considers his imprisonment as arbitrary, and they have also demanded for his immediate release.
