Corruption in Madhya Pradesh Media: Biased journalism, Hindi newspapers exposed

How major Hindi newspapers in Madhya Pradesh are involved in corruption, was exposed recently, when news of ragging in a college was published without naming the institution at all.

A young student of NRI group's pharmacy college was beaten up for not wearing trousers that had pleats as part of a 'dress code'. His father went to college and met authorities but 'senior' students also misbehaved with him.

The youth, Akash Sahu, was beaten up and had to be admitted to hospital. The police also registered the case. But the newspapers blacked out the institution's name. It was not the work of institution but that of some youths.

But mass circulated Hindi newspapers including Dainik Bhaskar, Dainik Jagran and Patrika didn't carry the name of the private college. All for few advertisements and moolah!

When a minor incident is reportedly unfairly and the big groups get 'managed' by the small fries, one can imagine whether reports and stories about powerful politicians, corrupt bureaucrats and land mafia could get published in these papers!
