 扔鞋事件重演 印内政部长遭飞鞋袭击

A journalist throws his shoe at India's Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram during a news conference in New Delhi in this video frame grab from ANI TV released April 7, 2009.

 

An angry journalist threw a shoe at India's top official after a confrontational exchange during a press conference over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots that left thousands dead.

The shoe missed Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram, who continued taking questions yesterday as officials escorted the journalist away.

The journalist, Jarnail Singh, was taken into police custody, but released after questioning, said police spokesman Rajan Bhagat. Singh is a veteran reporter with one of India's largest newspapers, the Hindi daily Dainik Jagran.

Before throwing the shoe, Singh - a Sikh - asked Chidambaram several questions about the Central Bureau of Investigation's findings last week that cleared a senior Congress party leader, Jagdish Tytler, from any involvement in the bloody riots that left 3,000 dead.

Chidambaram said CBI was an independent body and that the government played no role in the decision, and called for the public to be patient.

Singh, dressed in an olive-green shirt and a white turban, then threw his blue and white sneaker at Chidambaram, narrowly missing his face.

Moments later, Chidambaram repeatedly asked the reporters in the room to "settle down," and said, "the emotional outburst of one man should not hijack a press conference."

Soon after, Singh told TV news reporters that he regretted throwing the shoe but he felt Chidambaram was dodging the question.

"I just wanted to ask him how justice will be done, but he was not interested in answering the questions," he told CNN-IBN during a telephone interview from police custody. "I don't think it was the right way, what I have done, but the issue is right."

Singh did not say whether he was inspired by Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zeidi, who threw his shoes at former US president George W. Bush during his last visit to Baghdad.

日前,印度一位高级官员在一个新闻发布会上与一名记者在1984年的反锡克教徒暴乱问题上发生口舌之争,随后这位愤怒的记者将一只鞋向他扔去。1984年的反锡克教徒暴乱致数千人丧生。

在昨天的新闻发布会上,印度内政部长帕拉尼亚潘•奇丹巴拉姆躲过了“飞鞋”。警方将肇事记者带离会场后,他继续回答现场提问。

据警方发言人拉衍•巴贾特介绍,那位名叫贾奈尔•辛格的扔鞋记者被警方关押后接受了质询,随后被释放。辛格是印度最大的报纸之一印地语《觉醒日报》的一名资深记者。

在扔鞋之前,身为锡克教徒的辛格向奇丹巴拉姆提了几个有关上周印度中央调查局关于1984年血腥事件调查结果的问题,该调查为印度国大党的一位高级领导人贾格迪什•泰特勒洗清了罪名,认定其与导致三千人丧生的血腥镇压事件无关。

奇丹巴拉姆称,印度中央调查局是一个独立机构,印度政府并未对其决定施加影响,并呼吁公众耐心等待。

(听到这一回答后,)身穿橄榄绿衬衫,头戴白巾的辛格便将自己所穿的一只蓝白相间的运动鞋扔向奇丹巴拉姆,差点砸到他的脸上。

过了一会,奇丹巴拉姆再三要求现场的记者“安静”,他说:“一个人情绪化的宣泄行为不应该搅乱整场记者招待会。”

随后辛格在接受电视台新闻记者的采访时称,他后悔扔鞋,但他觉得奇丹巴拉姆是在回避问题。

他在被警方关押期间接受CNN-IBN电视台的电话采访时说:“我只想问问他,怎样才能实现正义,但他对回答这些问题毫无兴趣。我处理的方式可能并不恰当,但问题是正当的。”

辛格并未提及自己是否受到伊拉克记者蒙塔兹•扎伊迪的启发。在美国前总统乔治•W•布什最后一次出访巴格达期间,发生了扎伊迪向布什砸鞋的事件。
