In Chhattisgarh, as controversy mounts over the arrests of two journalists in the past three weeks, the focus has turned to the first set of journalists arrested by the police, going back to a year ago. Somaru Nag and Santosh Yadav, two Bastar-based reporters, were arrested on in two separate cases, charged with assisting Maoists. Mr Nag has been booked for keeping watch while alleged Maoists burnt down a crusher plant. Mr Yadav has been booked for being present when a group of Maoists attacked a police patrol, killing a Special Task force personnel. He's been charged under the draconian Chhattisgarh Public Safety Act which can keep him in jail for up to five years.
