Recent Police Raids Target Journalists’ Residences in Delhi

**Delhi Police Conduct Raids on Media Outlets and Journalists Under Anti-Terrorism Laws**

Delhi police have conducted early morning raids on the offices of a news portal and the homes of nearly a dozen journalists, activists, and comedians across India under anti-terrorism laws, raising concerns about freedom of expression and press freedom in the country.

Several journalists were detained, and their phones and laptops were confiscated, but no official arrests have been made so far.

The raids were primarily targeted at individuals associated with NewsClick, an independent news site recently accused of receiving funds from China. Delhi police have registered a case against NewsClick and its founder under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, an anti-terrorism law, alleging that the organization had “received dubious funds to spread Chinese propaganda.”

Concerns about press freedom and freedom of expression have been growing in India, with various media outlets and journalists facing scrutiny, raids, and legal actions in recent years.
