The Editors Guild of India has strongly criticised the Yogi government and the UP police for preventing journalists from reporting on Hathras gangrape and murder case, and phone tapping of reporters, terming it “reprehensible”. The body also took umbrage on the manner in which funeral of the victim was done without her family and the press was prevented from reporting on it, and demanded the “Government create conditions in Hathras that do not obstruct journalists in any way”
