NEW DELHI: Days and weeks after two noted journalists Rana Ayyub and Ravish Kumar received threats and abuses, renowned TV journalist and writer Barkha Dutt has also received “chilling veiled threats.” The three are among few top media personalities in India who have been vocal against the politics of BJP and policies of the Narendra Modi government.

“Received chilling veiled threats and “messages” from powerful people in the Establishment today that my family and I are under surveillance – and that I will be smeared & maligned to stop me from starting any new projects,” Barkha Dutt tweeted Thursday noon.

As she has been advised to debug her house over the threats, she wondered if she is living in her own country.

“Was advised to get my house debugged. Is this my country?” she asked.

Couple of weeks back, NDTV anchor Ravish Kumar and renowned print journalist Barkha Dutt who has done investigative stories on Gujarat riots had received death threats and filthy abuses on social media.
