Kirant Workers Party, an armed group in the eastern plain of Nepal, prevented sports journalist Santosh Ojha and his father Dhundi Raj from visiting their ancestral home in eastern Khotang on January 22, Friday.
Radio Nepal employee Ojha, who is a central committee member of FNJ-affiliated Nepal Sports Journalist Forum (NSJF), had showed his identity card to the cadres of Party. But they snatched his identity card saying that Ojhas are feudals and journalists are thieves. They blocked the Ojhas at Sungachari Bhanjyang, Khotang threatening to throw them into the Koshi river nearby.
