Puducherry Journalists Union today held a demonstration infront of the police head quarters here demanding action against the police personnel who attacked the photo journalists inside the court complex here yesterday.
A large number of scribes, including leaders of AIADMK, BJP, NCP, RJD, BSP, VCK, Periyar Dravidar Kazhagam and Federation for Peoples Rights, also joined the agitation.
Alleging that the Puducherry Chief Minister was not taking any action, they demanded immediate arrest of the culprits.
Later, they submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister seeking proper action against the police personnel and adequate compensation
to the affected scribes.
Earlier, the scribes took out a procession from the Puducherry Press Club to the police head quarters.
