An underground local group warned two Nepali weeklies-Sirish and Janasaugat- published from the district to not continue publishing news in Nepali language.
Baba Khan of Tarai Rastriya Mukti Sena has been warning editor duo Ajaya Kumar Sah and Ganesh Prasad Kharel of the weeklies with physical action if they do not follow his instruction.
Khan has been threatening editors Sah and Kharel through a cell phone with the number of 9804886334, according to TKP.
Concluding that the culture of impunity is behind the trend of rising threats and obstruction to media workers, Freedom Forum asks the government to introduce special mechanism to bring such perpetrators in to justice.
It has not only prevented journalists from doing their profession and gagged press freedom but also prohibited people right to access information which largely affects people in course of building opinion.
