Janak Rishi Rai threatened

On March 27, reporter for the Purnank weekly, Janak Rishi Rai, was threatened of attack by a person nicknamed God Angel over a news story relating to his citizenship certificate.
"God Angel threatened me over phone- why I wrote the story about his citizenship certificate, and he would send goons to attack me," said journalist Rai while talking to Freedom Forum.

He added that God Angel's citizenship certificate was printed with some additional information which was not in others.

Freedom Forum condemns these incidents which have violated press freedom. Attacking reporters merely because of the publication of news and other threats over the news show how hostile the situation is to the media and journalists.
