Media persons demonstrate against harassment in Kashmir

Jammu and Kashmir
Srinagar, Aug 25: Srinagar-based media persons working with local, national and international organisations today (Aug 25) staged an hour-long dharna here against alleged harassment by police and CRPF while discharging their professional duties.

The scribes including reporters, photojournalists and video-journalists held the protest following the recent assault and detention by police of two photojournalists in the Valley.

With black bands tied around their arms and carrying placards, Kashmir's media fraternity demanded an end to the harassment by state police and CRPF personnel.

The protests come a week after two photo-journalists including a Mexican national were allegedly assaulted by police and CRPF while covering a demonstration at Nowhatta in Srinagar's old city.
