SHILLONG: Meghalaya Editors & Publishers Association(MEPA) has strongly condemned on the high handedness of the Assam Police who mercilessly assaulted a Mizo journalist as she was covering the simmering conflict along the Assam-Mizoram border last week.
In a statement MEPA president RM Shabong said the journalists have their own liberty to be present on such un easy situation and that the Assam Police should have allowed them to perform their duty without favour or fear.
MEPA asked the Assam government to institute an enquiry into it and to punish the elements responsible for it since the incident has made a huge dent in the image of the police force.
MEPA extends its support to our journalist friends in Mizoram and wishes for their fast recovery of the injured persons.
