Delhi Police files FIR in journalist Barkha Dutt harassment case


Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The Cyber Cell of Delhi police Wednesday registered an FIR in connection with the alleged harassment of journalist Barkha Dutt on social media. Dutt had alleged that she was receiving threatening phone calls and obscene pictures. No arrests have been made so far in the case.

On February 19, the National Commission for Women (NCW) had asked Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik to initiate “speedy investigation” into the matter. In the letter to the police chief, NCW said it has come across media reports about Dutt claiming she had received threat calls and had been harassed on social media after she offered to help Kashmiris who were being targeted after the Pulwama terror attack.

The journalist had also tweeted to Delhi Police apprising them of the matter. “I had close to 1000 abusive messages and calls in a Coordinated and violent mob attack. These included a message to shoot me, a nude photo, many sexually abusive messages. I outed the men who did this. Twitter locked me till many of the details were taken down. I wroe this to them,” she had said in a tweet.

“I have continued to get hundreds of abuses, sexually violent messages and threats to my life for a second day running. I urgently ask @DelhiPolice @MPpoliceonline @PoliceRajasthan @PunjabPoliceInd to intervene. FIR with Delhi Police.”
