Molestation: Channel Chief quits

Caught in a barrage of acrimony over the molestation case, editor-in-chief of a controversial satellite news channel quits on Tuesday. Addressing a press conference in Guwahait, Newslive chief editor Atanu Bhuyan who had videographed the molestation of a girl outside a pub in Guwahati, said that he decided to quit the job under pressure from the management. But he claimed that he would be the member of the channel’s board of directors. But he strongly defended reporter Gauravjyoti Neog a day after the off duty reporter was grilled by police for several hours.
