CAAJ invites you to a seminar on the need of a Journalis Safety Act in the states of Haryana and Punjab.
As you must be knowing, Chhatrapati Ram Chander, the martyred Editor of newspaper Poora Sach has got justice after 17 years of legal battle and the accused Baba Ram Rahim has been convicted to life sentence for his murder.
