The International Human Rights Organisation (IHRO) today claimed that two journalists from different TV Channels had been trying to blackmail a former PCS officer, Mr A.R. Darshi, on the pretext of releasing some ‘fictitious’ story on the channels.

Mr Darshi and the IHRO chairperson, Mr D.S. Gill, said the journalists claimed that some person had written a letter to the police that Mr Darshi having a pro-Khalistan ideology was involved in the hitherto unsolved murder case of Bikramjit Singh, son of an industrialist.

However, the two journalists not only denied the allegations but also announced to sue the complainant for defamation. One of the journalists claimed that he had done a story featuring Mr Darshi and it was duly released by his channel.

The story concentrated on Mr Darshi's alleged association with the ideology of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale. The journalists claimed that when they went to Mr Darshi's residence the latter claimed he had no association with Bhindrawale, but there was a large photo of Bhindrawale hung in the drawing room.

The second journalist named as the co-accused counter claimed that he had neither talked with Mr Darshi any time over the phone nor had ever met him.

The IHRO had submitted a complaint to the local police seeking police action against the journalists.
