Alongside the case Yatin Varma, who resigned from his post as Minister of Justice on Tuesday evening, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Infrastructure, Anil Bachoo, yesterday lambasted journalists, calling them "animals" and of "mentally ill" at an official outlet at Flacq in the East of Mauritius.

"It's sad to say. I pray that God gives intelligence to these animals", said Anil Bachoo, number 4 of the Mauritian government.

Before the outcry over his statements, the Minister of Public Infrastructure, Anil Bachoo, then withdrew his remarks and apologized to the private station Radio Plus for this misspoke.
