Media access to crime inquiry stressed


Bhubaneswar:In this digital age, media and civil society should continue to have enormous access to crime investigation proceedings, said Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta at a seminar on “Accountability in Criminal Investigation” organised by the Odisha Civil Liberty Forum (OCLF) here on Saturday.
