Policepersons beat up journalist Puskar Thapa

Yet again, Freedom Forum has been concerned over an incident of press freedom violation occurred in Dailekh, a far western district in the hilly region of Nepal, on September 12, 2011.
Policepersons beat up journalist Puskar Thapa, reporter to the Annapurna Post daily, while he was returning home from a local Panchakoshi Community FM at 9:00pm in the district headquarters.

In this way, the security persons who are mobilized to maintain peace and security are involved in creating terror and beating up journalists.

Freedom Forum condemns the incident as the body to provide safety and protection to the people is itself beating up journalists. Therefore, the administration in the district must take action against the guilty ones involved in the beating.
