An unwarranted attack on Tamil Malar owner and staffs in KL on 5th September 2017
---------------------------


Alleged gangsters today visited a Tamil news daily office and beat up their staff over a expose made about an MIC leader.

Tamil Malar, had exposed MIC Wilayah state chairman Datuk M. Saravanan for stealing from the rental collection of the state MIC building.

This infuriated the MIC leader who is also Deputy Youth and Sports Minister was at the scene.

Minutes after arriving Saravanan, the gangsters and some MIC CWC members went to Tamil Malar and assaulted the General Manager Saraswathy with punches and slaps.

The gangsters then directed their violence towards the owner of the paper, Oms Thiagarajan.

The chaos left a bloody situation where both the GM, owner and some staff were left bleeding, injured and even suffered some broken teeth.

The incident is a major blow to the credibility of Barisan Nasional, where a woman reporter cum General Manager of a daily newspaper was attacked mercilessly by the politician and his goons.

Drastic and immediate action should be taken for such a heinous attack on a media practitioner and their staff.

I urge National Union of Journalists Malaysia (NUJ) to also bring this up and call for immediate action as this is blatant physical attack due to a media expose.

This also serves as a U-turn to any ground made in the country for press freedom and the protection of media practitioners.

Barisan Nasional should also take action against this leader as he is bringing shame to the party and coalition.

I Met lawyer Saras at the Dang Wagi Police HQ. Mr. Peri the General Manager was then giving a statement to the police.

Mr Oms the owner and well philanthropist was injured and has been rushed to Hospital.
