Police takes under control a reporter for an hour

On May 16, 2014, police took under control a reporter of a local Kalika FM Radio of Chitwan, a district in the central southern plain of Nepal while he was with colleagues to report about street children.

A police patrol took under control Arjun Sapkota for an hour without any reason, said a reporter to the National News Agency (RSS), Narayan Adhikari, adding that he was with his colleagues Urgen Tamang and Suman Khanal to report about the condition of street children.

Freedom Forum condemns the police action against journalist without any reason. Such activity of the security person is quite discouraging, and harassment in deed. Therefore, the police needs to heed the journalists' rights of free reporting.
