Anti-graft body arrests senior journalist Dixit

The anti-graft body, Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), has arrested senior journalist Kanak Mani Dixit from the capital city on April 22.

The CIAA arrested noted journalist and Chairman of Himal Media, Dixit, citing the reason that he did not cooperate with the CIAA investigation on his properties allegedly amassed by the illegal means.

The CIAA has however made it clear that Dixit was not arrested on behalf of a journalist and media owner but as the Chairperson of the Sajha Yatayat.

Dixit is also the Chairperson of the Sajha Yatayat.

However, noted journalist, coming out of police van said, “The CIAA action on me is biased and I am picked from the very place then king had arrested me during royal coup.”

Freedom Forum is of the view that journalism should not be made the reason behind the CIAA action on Dixit as he has indicated as ‘biased’.
