Mangalore, Mar 23: After spending more than four months in the district jail in connection with last year's attack on a Padil home stay, TV journalist Naveen Soorinje was finally released here on Saturday March 23 at 5.30 pm.

Soorinje's release comes five days after the high court granted him bail on March 18.

He was welcomed by a swarm of media persons, members of various organizations including DYFI, PUCL and Komu Souharda Vedike, and individuals like Vittal Malekudiya, a student who was released last year after being arrested on suspicions of assisting Naxal activities, and Vijaykumar, one of the victims of the home stay attack.

Speaking to daijiworld, Soorinje's lawyer Saitsh Kumar Bantwal said that he has been released after his brother-in-law Jagannath Shetty gave a surety bond of Rs 5 lac as ordered by the high court. Soorinje will be required to appear in the court as when he is called, he added.

Muneer Katipalla of DYFI welcomed Soorinje's release and said, "We are happy that Soorinje fought against moral policing. We will continue our fight against moral policing in the future also."

Soorinje, one of the 44 accused in the home stay case, was arrested on November 7, 2012 in a flash operation by Kankanady police led by circle inspector Ravish Naik.

The government had dropped charges against him following a hunger strike by media persons in Bangalore. Courts at various levels had denied him bail.

He was finally granted bail by the high court after one of the victims, Vijaykumar, appeared as a witness and claimed that Soorinje had been falsely framed by the police to hide their own inefficiency, and also that Soorinje had even tried to save the boys and girls who were being attacked.

The battle cannot be over. The injustice done to the journalist has to be addressed so that people who have not committed the crime do not land up in jails. All those responsible in jailing the person should be brought to justice. Its time to expose the "hidden agenda" of the various affiliates who have caused havoc in the place. In the meantime, to all those who worked for the cause of Naveen's release, congrats.

If Naveen Soorinje look so good after going to prison, then all of us need to spend at least one month for such a make over.

When time is good everything looks good
When time is bad even good looks bad

Good man will have always respect in society whatever currupt police charges.
We have examples of police charged more than 25 cases on innoscent people as an 'Nexalite' where as they utterly failed to catch real 'Nexalites'

Dear Naveen, may God Bless you. A true Hindu, who had to go to jail but never failed in delivering justice. Court will give you clean chit soon. But those police officers who filed false case against you should be punished once congress govt comes in power after these election.

Justice at last (only half delivered). You have done good work exposing the extremist groups and the inefficiency of Mangalore police under the influence of extremists.As protectors law and order in the society they should be ashamed of them selves to be allowed to be ruled by sang parivar & co.

Informing police in advance is the most stupid thing one can do when it comes to corrupt police of India, who are hand in glove with criminals.
Don't U think it's the work of the police to stop crime and even before it takes place...?
