Freedom Forum has been concerned over an incident where a journalist was injured in the capital city.

Editor of the online media, www.onlinepatrika.com, Subin Shrestha was injured while taking photograph of a police clash with the protestors during a torch rally organized by a faction of the ruling Maoists party in the evening of April 11, 2012.

Editor Shrestha happened to have his eye contacted slightly on the torch which caused injury thereby leading him to be admitted in the Tilaganga Eye Hospital.

According to the doctors attending journalist Shrestha, the lower part of the pupil had slight burn so he was in need of rest for some days.

Freedom Forum wishes speedy recovery of journalist Shrestha, and urges the concerned party cadres and police administration to respect journalists' right.
