Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) expresses concern at the suspected assault by miscreants on city-based scribe Naresh Mitra, who works for Times of India, and demands proper investigation into the accident that took place on Friday night in the city.

On that fateful night after completing his works in TOI office, Naresh went home by his modified bi-cycle at around 10.30 pm and he was later recovered in an unconscious condition inside the city. Initially Naresh was admitted in GMCH but later his family shifted him to Nemcare hospital.

The senior journalist, widely known for his frequent environmental reporting, has received injuries on his head. He is still in the ICU and an operation was conducted on Sunday morning. Attending doctors informed his close relatives that it may not be a simple case of accident. They apprehend it as an assault case by miscreants.

“We strongly demand a high-level probe into the incident where Naresh got injured on that night. Moreover, we wish his early recovery and express hope that soon he would regain full consciousness and be able to explain the event,” said a statement issued by JFA president Rupam Barua and secretary Nava Thakuria.
