The Editor’s Guild of India yesterday attacked the Adani Group to which the Sri Lankan government is planning to handover development of almost half of Colombo port’s eastern terminal, over attempts to muzzle the media.

The guild has issued a statement following an arrest warrant issued by a court in Gujarat on journalist Paranjoy Guha Thakurta in relation to a defamation case filed against him by Adani group in 2017.

“The issue of a non-bailable warrant by a lower court against Mr Thakurta is another example of how intolerant the business houses have become to any criticism. Routinely they have targeted independent and intrepid journalists by using the very instruments that provide media the necessary protection” the guild has said in a statement.
