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.
