SRINAGAR: Authorities on Sunday put severe restrictions on movement of journalists here following the imposition of curfew.
Despite all journalists having been issued curfew passes, the passes were not honoured by the police and Central Reserve Police Force. Most were not allowed to move about and asked to go back.
Some journalists alleged that they were harassed and asked to “cooperate” in enforcement of the curfew.
Two journalists were beaten up while on the way to their offices. National, local and international journalists faced difficulties in discharging their duties as they could not reach their offices and the hotspots.
This reporter was also turned back from Hyderpora crossing while on the way to office. “Curfew is in force. I cannot allow you to go,” a CRPF officer said.
Various local channels could not telecast evening news bulletins on Sunday as their reporters and camerapersons were not allowed to come out and discharge their duties.
The scroll aired by these channels read: “We cannot air the evening news bulletins as mediapersons were not allowed to perform their duties.”
