NFNE condemns assault on Journalists in Arunachal


National Federation of Newspaper Employees has expressed shock at the incident of assault on two women journalists of Arunachal Pradesh and condemned the incident. The national organization of media persons also extends moral support to the ongoing agitating programmes of local journalists against the authority for its failure to nab the culprits even after four days of the incident, stated in a release issued by Nava Thakuria, zonal secretary, NFNE.


It may be mentioned that the entire press fraternity of the State has come out strongly against the assault and demanded to book the culprits. They have dressed in black and demonstrated in front of Capital Complex DC’s office Thursday morning.


“On December 12, Appu Gapak and Nyapi Bomjen of ‘The Sentinel Arunachal’ were assaulted while they were on duty. Irked at the repeated assault and lack of action by the concerned authorities, the journalists had launched a series of democratic protests including boycott of all State government related news reports,” stated in a report of a local newspaper.


The journalists have meanwhile threatened to go for ‘pen down protest’ from tomorrow (December 18) until the culprits are arrested and punished under the law.
