An unknown person threatened of journalist Kabiraj BC of life over phone.
According to scribe BC, the unknown person said over phone, "Aren't you a journalist? I'm a don. I'll slit your throat and finish you."
The threat came all of a sudden on October 9 without any apparent reason, said journalist BC, a reporter with the Gorkhapatra daily and ABC television from Dailekh, a far western district of the country.
Scribe BC is threatened merely because he does reporting to media.
This way, journalists are targeted time and again from different sectors and bound to work under pressure which is responsible for self-censorship.
Freedom Forum condemns the incident and urges strongly to be aware of media freedom and journalist's rights and people's right to information.
