The Sangrah Police in Sirmour district on Sunday raided the office of a vernacular daily on the basis of a telephone call from an unidentified person.
The District Journalists' Association, under the leadership of their president S.P. Jerath, today submitted a representation to Sirmour Deputy Commissioner Pushpinder Rajput to be sent to Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal.
The journalists' body has demanded action against the police officials who acted without verifying the facts.
The journalists said some unknown person called up the Sangrah police, saying that Jai Parkash, a correspondent with the daily, was involved in supplying drugs. They said the police immediately raided the office of the daily but could not find anything illegal. They have urged the CM to take action against the officials concerned.
