'Govt brazenly hounding those who speak truth': Mehbooba Mufti on BBC raids

Srinagar/UNI: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said the government of India is "brazenly hounding" those who "speak the truth".

She was reacting to surveys by income tax officers at the BBC's bureaus in New Delhi and Mumbai on Tuesday.

The searches happened weeks after a massive controversy erupted over a two-part BBC documentary on PM Modi.

PDP chief Mufti said the raids showed that the cause and effect of raids on the BBC Office are quite obvious

“Cause & effect of raids on the BBC Office is quite obvious. GOI is brazenly hounding those who speak the truth. Be it opposition leaders, media, activists or anyone else for that matter. The gloves are off & there is a price one pays for fighting for truth,” she tweeted.
