Mahajan’s family warned legal action against TV Channels

published on April 25, 2006

MUMBAI: The constant misrepresentation of facts by a section of the media, especially television channels, has upset the Mahajan’s family. Pramod Mahajan’s  brother-in-law, Gopinath Munde, even threatened legal action if the media carried what he called erroneous reports about “women and affairs”.


 


Pramod’s daughter Poonam Rao said the media should have exercised some restraint given the situation the family was going through.


 


MLC Madhu Chavan said at least the print media had been tolerable, but the electronic media coverage was “horrifying and traumatic.” Omprakash Kulkarni, a close relative of the Mahajans, said that no sooner had the news of the shooting reached the place, a swarm of reporters barged into the Mahajan residence where his 90-plus mother-in-law Kamlabai Hamine lived. The frail woman was grilled with queries like what she felt about the incident, Kulkarni complained.
