Journalist at Radio Nepal Mukunda Bhandari was issued threat by an unknown group in Kathmandu on October 4. Kathmandu lies in province 3 of Nepal.
Talking to Freedom Forum's monitoring desk journalist Bhandari shared that a group of unknown youths approached me and threatened of any mishap after 4-5 days. "I am totally unaware about those guys and the reason for threatening me.", he added.
Freedom Forum is concerned over the incident. At this time, journalists are receiving series of threats due to their profession. If this threat is also due to his profession, it would be sheer violation of press freedom and journalists' rights, FF observes. Hence, FF strongly urges the concerned authority to ensure safety and security of the working journalists.
