INDORE: Journalists in Indore on Monday protested against the registration of a case against a senior media person from Neemuch for an alleged offensive Facebook post and demanded its cancellation.

Indore Press Club President Arvind Tiwari said they have sent a memorandum to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to demand cancellation of the FIR against Jitendra Surana.

He said the case was an attempt to throttle the right to free speech and expression.

Surana was booked at Kotwali police station in Khargone district after he posted comments following Home Minister Bhupender Singh's announcement of Padmavati award for a gang rape survivor.
