Guwahati, Jan 18:

Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA), expressing serious concerns over an unprecedented incident of abusing a lady scribe of a city based  Assamese daily newspaper at Guwahati Press Club during a formal press meet by the organizers, demanded exemplary punishments to the verbal and physical abusers.
Media reports and personal inputs from the victim reporter reveal that the press meet was organized by film producer Umashankar Jha and actor Uttam Singh at the press club auditorium on 16 January 2021, where the scribe was subjected to verbal and later physical abuses in the full public view.
“It is shocking that an attending reporter can be subjected to ill-treatments in a formal press meet organized at the press club premises. All sensitive and responsible members of the press club must stand united against the offense,” said a statement issued by JFA president Rupam Barua and secretary Nava Thakuria.
Meanwhile, she has lodged an FIR at Panbazar all women police station. The forum  urged the State police chief Bhaskar J Mahnata to take personal interests in punishing the culprits. Moreover, it requested the press club authority to cooperate with the investigating police personnel with necessary supports including the required CCTV visuals.
