A police person manhandled a news editor, Shyam Sundar Yadav, and seized his camera while taking a photograph on police atrocity on a person at Saptari, a district in the southern plain of Nepal on October 8.
The news editor with the News Today daily, Yadav, was not only manhandled but also spoken foul while photographing.
Freedom Forum condemns the incident that obstructed news collection which is against press freedom and against journalist's right to free reporting.
Therefore, the police involved in the manhandling needs to correct his behavior towards journalist, return camera and respect press freedom.
