Kalikot's reporter threatened for reporting news

Kalikot district reporter at Nepal Samacharpatra daily Kali Bahadur Malla was issued death threat for reporting news on September 4. Kalikot district lies in Karnali Province of Nepal.

Talking to Freedom Forum, reporter Malla shared that he had reported news critical to a political cadre Dan Bahadur Shahi following which Shahi threatened Malla of slitting his throat. 

Though Nepal Police arrested Shahi after complaint filed at the district police office, Shahi's family members are threatening Malla.

Freedom Forum is concerned over the incident as it is sheer violation of press freedom. The concerned is urged to approach Press Council Nepal for any discontent over news rather than threatening a journalist. 

The security authority is strongly urged to ensure safety and security of the journalists.
