Local entrepreneur issued a threat to journalist Tanka Prasad Kandel over news in Kailali on June 9. Kailai lies in Sudurpaschim Province.
Kandel is associated with Radio Mirmire and Dabali sanchar online.
Freedom Forum's representative for Sudurpaschim Province, Min Bam, journalist Kandel published news about the responsibility given to NGOs for the suggestion collection of Municipality's policy and program and another story was on the headline,'' Contrary to the drainage construction criteria in the 1 million budget of the state infrastructure.''
Journalist Kandel was threatened by local entrepreneur Hom Prasad Acharya through telephonic conversation who aggressively used foul words to journalist over the published news.
Freedom Forum condemns the incident as it is a sheer violation of press freedom. Instead of seeking legal ways to sort out the complaint, threatening journalists is deplorable. Hence, FF urges concerned authority to take action and ensure a fear free atmosphere for journalists.
