THE Delhi Union of Journalists (DUJ) and Kerala Union of Working Journalist (KUWJ) Delhi Unit, in a joint statement on July 28,  have expressed serious concern,  both at the curbs on Kashmiri journalist Aakash Hassan, who was ‘barred’ from flying to Sri Lanka for coverage and the arrest warrant against journalist Ravi Nair in an Adani defamation suit. “These attacks constitute a continuum of attacks and threats to independent journalists and journalism in India today”, the statement said.
