I-T raids on Dainik Bhaskar: Opp slams bid to ‘stifle’ media; agencies doing their work, says Govt

Hours after the Income Tax Department conducted searches at the premises of the Dainik Bhaskar Group, the Opposition hit out at the government Thursday, calling it a “brazen attempt” to “scare the media” and “suppress the voice of truth”, and a “brutal attempt to stifle democracy”. Countering the allegations, Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur said there is no interference in the functioning of government agencies. “Agencies are doing their work.
