Ferozepur's Press Club condemns attack on journalist's residence
The Press Club of Ferozepur has condemned the attack on the house of a journalist Devinder Paul, late last night. Parminder Singh Thind, President of the press club demanded an impartial probe into the incident and strict punishment to the accused.

As per the report, some unidentified assailants threw a petrol bomb at the residence of The Tribune's reporter, Devinder Pal, late on Monday night. 

The Tribune is running a series of investigations by Devinder Pal about the business interests of the extended Badal family. Devinder has lodged a police complaint alleging that some unidentified assailants tried to torch his house.

According to Devinder, he was woken up by the sound of broken glass. He found glass pieces strewn on the floor and a burning piece of cloth that was apparently attached to the glass container. He prevented the fire from spreading by pouring water on the burning cloth.

A PCR vehicle reached his house after he called up the control room. Two Home Guard jawans were deployed at the main gate of the house.

Press Club's members have said that they won't tolerate attack on media, the fourth pillar of democracy.
