Press Guild of Kashmir criticises restrictions

Shujaat Bukhari

SRINAGAR: The Kashmir Valley will again have no newspapers on Monday as the authorities have put restrictions on the mediapersons. Four newspapers were published on Sunday but their staff were allegedly beaten up, and the distribution was affected.

The Press Guild of Kashmir (PGK) has condemned the virtual ban imposed by the government on the publication of Kashmir-based newspapers and other media institutions.

At an emergency meeting held here, the Guild deplored the action. “Some of the media houses tried to resume publication on Sunday. But the police beat up several journalists and workers of four newspapers and some of them were taken to hospital. Several thousand newspapers are lying in the respective offices as the police chased the distributors and hawkers during the early hours of Sunday,” a statement said.
