EMFA sticks to scribes’ protection

Electronic Media Forum Assam (Emfa), while condemning the physical assaults to two television reporters recently at the outskirt of the city, reiterated its stand in favour of a national protection law for the safety & security of media persons on duty.

Two young reporters namely Trilok Singh (Pratidin Time correspondent) and Bijoy Ghosh (Assam Talks correspondent) based at Jorabat faced attacks from miscreants on 13 July night, when they went to cover the fire that broke out at 9th Mile locality. An FIR was already lodged at Khanapara police outpost.

“We join the chorus by various media rights body for a special law to safeguard the journalists on duty hours across the country. We also believe that the journalist fraternity of India should (must) be ensured justice for their assignments as many of them may turn fatal,” said the Emfa statement.
