Journalist Baton charged

The unidentified group hurt him with bamboo sticks at around 8.45 PM on July 6 while he was returning home in a motorbike (Sa. 1 Pa. 5547) after he gave interview for dialogue programme in Lahan-based Samad FM. He said that he managed to protect himself from a big assault further as he could escape from there and reached Michaiya with the high speed in motorbike.

He has wounds in his head, neck, chest, mouth and face, said his brother Jageswor. Sah, who was also former Chairperson of Phulbariya VDC, returned to home after undergoing treatment at a local health centre.

Freedom Forum condemns the incident and demands with the authorities concerned to ensure security to protect journalists. The Forum also asks the government to come up with strong security measures to check the rising attack on journalists across the country.
