A group of hooligans entered the office of Radio Banglachuli and threatened the mediapersons on December 5. The radio station is in Dang, Lumbini Province.
Program head at the radio station, Bhupendra Parkash Oli, shared with Freedom Forum that around 40-50 persons including political cadres entered the radio station and threatened staff. They also tore staffs' attendance book and other official documents.
They have said that they visited the radio station for monitoring purpose.
“We have also informed the local police about the incident, however, no investigation has been carried out till date (December 7),” Oli added.
Freedom Forum condemns the incident. Entering a media house without consent and threatening mediapersons has violated media and journalists’ right to work in free atmosphere.
Hence, FF strongly urges the concerned authority to investigate the case fairly.
