India on Thursday trashed Germany’s criticism over fact-checker Mohammed Zubair’s arrest, saying the independence of the country’s judiciary is well recognised and that “uninformed” comments are “unhelpful” and should be avoided.

The comments by External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi came a day after a German foreign ministry official said journalists should not be “persecuted and imprisoned” for what they say and write while referring to police action against Zubair.
