Kashmir Press Club (KPC) on Friday strongly condemned the “assault and seizure of cameras” of the photo journalists in south Kashmir’s Pulwama.
Demanding action against the accused security forces personnel responsible for the act, KPC reiterated its concern about difficulties faced by journalists working in Kashmir.
“Recalling the sequence of events one among the photo journalists said that policemen abused them while they were performing their duties,” said the KPC, in a statement. “The officer hurled abused, thrashed and seized our cameras. An hour later, our equipment was returned to us,” he was quoted as having said.
Noting the concern, the KPC urged the Governor’s administration and in particular the higher up in the police force to investigate the matter and act against those found responsible for it.
