Freedom of press?

20-25 odd journalists gather at DM Residence at 2:30 in the night.
Knowing fully well that DM is not in town.
Reason: They wanted to register their protest against alleged misbehaviour with an IBN7 journalist by Lucknow Police by presenting a memorandum.

SDM Sadar had to travel 30-40 kms to accept this memorandum on behalf of the State.

Q1. Is 2:30 in the night an opportune time to register protest however peaceful?

Q2. Do public officials have no personal life or more precisely, 'Right to get a peaceful night's sleep'?

Q3. Is this the kind of Fourth Estate our democracy is built upon? Absolute freedoms and no sense of responsibility.
