Sahitya Academy has called for an emergency meeting of its executive body, in New Delhi, over writers returning their awards, protesting against 'threats to freedom of expression.' Meanwhile, a number of writers, wearing black bands and wrist bands, are marching in protest from Mandi House to the Academy. They are furious that the Academy has not made any statement against the murder of Prof. M.M. Kalburgi.
