In a token protest, orgainsed here in front of Jayadev Bhavan, senior journalists Prafulla Das, Rabi Das, Prashant Patnaik and Satya Prakas Nayak unanimously condemned the CBI raids and urged for a unity among journalists.

Condemning the raids, senior journalist Prafulla Das said, “CBI used an old case to act against the NDTV founder. It happened days after BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra had a hitch in a debate on NDTV.
