Reporter Jha serious with police attack

 DECEMBER 28, 2015 On December 24, police persons attacked Abadhesh Jha, reporter to the Kantipur daily from Biratnagar, a southern city in the eastern part of Nepal.

Talking to Freedom Forum, reporter Jha said, "Police persons attacked me while I was visualizing their atrocities on protestors. Although I was on press jacket, they kicked me again and again, and even on the sensitive part which made me nearly unconscious. Later I was rescued by fellow journalists and taken to a local Golden Hospital. I was discharged after two days and have been taking rest, taking medicine."
