Govt to file case against scribes for wrong report

Police will register FIR within a week against the scribes, one based in Guwahati and the other in Kolkata, Home Ministry sources said here. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police has already lodged a complaint before the Delhi Police, saying the journalists have filed a wrong story that two of its jawans were injured when the Chinese Army fired at them from across the border in Kerang in northern Sikkim earlier this month.

The news report, carried on September 15, was denied by the ITBP saying no such incident had taken place anywhere along the Sino-Indian border where the ITBP personnel are deployed. The External Affairs Ministry also came out with a denial the same day, describing the report as “factually incorrect.” India has been seeking to play down the recent reports of Chinese incursions while maintaining that the situation was not alarming.
