Journalist, his family attacked by former sarpanch for critical report on govt project

Bureau chief of a Gujarat Daily in Valsad was assaulted, along with his wife and one and a half-year-old daughter by a former sarpanch on Saturday night, days after the journalist’s report, critical of the government project undertaken by accused, was published in the newspaper.
According to police, 34-year-old Harshad Ahir, a native of Bhagdawada in Valsad, who is the city bureau chief of Gujarat Mitra – a daily newspaper, was assaulted along with his wife Ketna (30) and the girl child, by a group of three men on Saturday night. The family stays in an apartment in the city area of Valsad, which technically falls under Bhagdawada village panchayat. The prime accused has been identified as Dharmesh Patel, former sarpanch of Bhagdawada village along with his alleged accomplices Jaydev Desai and Sagar Patel.
According to the victim, the accused took offence of a story he had done a few days back for his newspaper regarding the “inefficient” work carried out in the beautification drive of a pond in Bhagdawada.
