The Kashmir Files: Vivek Agnihotri accuses the press club india of ‘suppressing’ free voice
The Press Club India (PCI) has landed in a controversy after ‘The Kashmir Files’ director Vivek Agnohotri accused it of denying booking to him for a press conference.
Agnihotri said his booking was first cancelled by the Foreign Correspondent Club (FCC) allegedly over objections raised by some of the members and later, the Press Club of India followed the suit.
Now, the event is being held in a hotel on Thursday.
Taking to Twitter, Agnihotri said: “Wow! @PCITweets also cancelled me. The watchdogs of democracy and messiah of free speech not only banned me undemocratically but are also lying through their teeth. 1. Encl are the facts.
2. They have booked earlier through our agency without any member’s recco. Receipt encl.”
In a series of Tweets, Agnihotri said: “When my video on FCC cancellation went viral, @PCITweets conspired with them and cancelled our presser.
These anti- free speech, anti-Truth, agenda driven elite clubs flourish on Govt’s sprawling properties in Lutyen’s Delhi. It’s time for us to expose these arrogant cheats.”
Agnihotri insisted that the club has been booking for him through an agency and did not require any member’s endorsement on the receipt. He tagged the earlier receipts issued by the PCI.
On Tuesday, the PCI said in a tweet: “The Press Club of India is not facilitating any event on May 5 by any individual or organisation. The Club allows press conferences only with advanced booking. There is a due process, and bookings have to be done through a member of the Club.”
Controversy broke after the FCC cancelled the event organised by the film director. He then said that he will organise the same in PCI but Agnihotri alleged that he was not booked for May 5 programme despite his agency pursuing it with the PCI staff.
The letter alleged that when Agnihotri’s agency called the PCI staff for booking, he was told that it can be booked as slot is vacant in May 5 and asked for making payments but when the agency employee reached there, the PCI did not book the premises and did not respond to calls.
Now, the event has been shifted to a hotel near to the Press Club of India. “Inviting all democratic and free speech, pro-TRUTH believers, media people, correspondents, reporters media activists and those with empathy for Kashmir Genocide victims tomm at 3.30 PM at Le MERIDIEN, New Delhi. ITS AN OPEN HOUSE PRESS CONFERENCE. ASK ME TOUGHEST QUESTIONS,” the filmmaker tweeted.
Bhojpuri singer booked for abetment to suicide of actress
Police in Uttar Pradeh’s Sarnath have registered a case against Bhojpuri singer Samar Singh and his brother Sanjay Singh under sections including abetment to suicide in the Akansha Dubey death case.
Police has taken this action on the complaint of the late actress’s mother who reached Varanasi from Mumbai.
Akanksha’s mother Madhu said that her daughter was very courageous and that she could not have committed suicide.
She appealed to the police and administration for justice.
Akanksha’s mother and brother reached the police station on Monday morning while her father Chhote Lal Dubey is still on the way.
Madhu told reporters that she had spoken to Akanksha on phone on Saturday evening and she seemed happy.
She told the police that Samar Singh often used to beat and torture Akanksha.

According to her, Akanksha Dubey was in a live-in relationship with Samar Singh.
She also questioned the fact that Akansha’s body was found sitting on the bed with a dupatta tied around her neck.
“How can anyone hang herself while sitting on the bed? It is a clear case of murder,” she stated.
Akansha Dubey was found dead in her room on Sunday in Sarnath but no suicide note was found in the room.
