This week, host Tanishka Sodhi is joined by Newslaundry’s Sumedha Mittal and Basant Kumar.
Sumedha had interviewed journalists who witnessed the shooting of Atiq Ahmed and his brother in Prayagraj. They told her they still had to report on the story despite the horrors of what they went through. “I would have frozen and taken a backseat if a shootout took place in front of my eyes,” Sumedha says. “I would not have been able to report.”
Basant’s story of the week was on how a cow was killed in Agra as part of a conspiracy to falsely implicate some Muslim men. “It would have been a big issue. There could have been riots in the area,” he says. “But because of the detailed and quick investigation by the police, no major incident took place.”
