Posh Nath Adhikari, reporter with the Kantipur daily from Dhading, a hilly district adjoining the capital city was looted by the unknown armed persons while going back home from the office on January 19.
Talking to Freedom Forum Media Monitoring Desk, Adhikari who is also the publisher of the Mangalprabhav Kiran weekly said, "Two armed persons robbed me off a digital camera, mobile, purse and office bag while returning home from office at the district headquarters in the evening of January 29."
Such incidents are responsible for panicking journalists thereby forcing them to practice self-censorship which does not promote free press.
Freedom Forum condemns both of the incidents and urges the concerned authorities to mete out punishment to the culprits.
