Arrest of journalist in Uttarakhand: daughter's revelation

The Uttarakhand government is using Maoist threat as a ploy to demand crores of rupees from the Centre, says Shikha Rahi, daughter of Prashant Rahi, arrested journalist and social activist.

Police claim that Prashant Rahi is zonal commander of the CPI (Maoist).

In an article, written for Combat Law, Shikha Rahi narrates the story of her father’s arrest, apparently to boost the claim of extremist threat.

See “A daughter’s plea” by Shikha Rahi, distributed by countercurrents.org
