By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, June 6 - Various press bodies today expressed �deep concern� over the CBI raids at the residence of NDTV founder Prannoy Roy, saying they condemn any �attempt� to either �intimidate the media� or put curbs on its freedom.

�We express grave concern over the raids conducted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)... on the premises of NDTV promoters.

�While we maintain that all individuals and every institution has to abide by the law of the land, we condemn any attempt to either intimidate the media or put curbs on its freedom,� president of the Press Club, Gautam Lahiri said.

The Central Bureau of Investigation had yesterday searched the residence of Roy here and three other locations for allegedly causing losses to a private bank, a move termed by the NDTV as a �witch-hunt� based on �same old� false accusations. � PTI
