The home of journalist Malini Subramaniam in Chhattisgarh’s Jagdalpur area was stoned on Sunday evening, hours after a group identifying itself as Samajik Ekta Manch, protested outside her house and asked her to leave Bastar.
Subramaniam, the former head of International Committee of Red Cross, contributes articles on Bastar to online portal Scroll.in and has, over the past one year, written extensively on alleged fake surrenders, arrests of journalists and tribal protests.
In a complaint to various administrative and police officers in Bastar district, the district headquarters of which is in Jagdalpur, Subramaniam has said that around 6 pm on Sunday, a group of 25 to 30 people gathered outside her house and started raising slogans such as “Naksali Samrthak Bastar Chhodo (Naxal supporter, leave Bastar)” and “Malini Subramaniam Murdabad”.

Subramaniam also said that the group asked her neighbours to also join the protest against her. “They told them that I worked for the Naxals and that I take money and supply arms to the rebels. They said a bomb could explode near their homes and asked them to join in the protests and hurl stones at my house,” she said. In the meantime, she tried to contact the SP, who remained unavailable.
Around 2.30 am, Subramaniam said she heard loud noises and the sound of motorbikes outside her house. When she went outside, she found stones had been hurled at her house and her vehicle had been damaged. “All this happened when I was alone with my daughter. Our mental peace has been shattered. There is a sense of fear in the colony and there is danger to our lives,” she said.
This is not the first time such an incident has taken place in Jagdalpur.
