Citizen FM's Editor Dhital Attacked

Kumar Silwal, hailing from Sindhupalchowk, a district neighbouring to the capital city, attacked Dipak Dhital, news in-charge at the Citizen's FM, in the capital city, on July 11, 2013.

Silwal allegedly involved in the illegal of supply of drug attacked editor Dhital, saying, "You're a journalist and following my case."

Mr Dhital received injury on his face due to the attack.

The attack, as the warn suggests, is a coordinated and against journalist's right.

Such incidents are responsible for growing self-censorship among journalists.

|Freedom Forum therefore condemns the attack and strongly urges the authority concerned to nab the attacker and mete out punishment.
