Imphal, Feb 25:

Media in Manipur is once more under threat from unidentified miscreants, but this time the threat was reportedly on a specific media house cautioning them of dire consequences if they revealed the threat to any third party.

The matter was taken seriously and considered as a threat to all the media houses of the state. Following the threat by the unknown miscreants, Editor Guilds Manipur and the AMWJU convened an emergency meeting and condemn such threat to media houses.

From February 14 till February 18 Manipuri media stopped publication after miscreants placed a hand grenade at Poknapham daily office. Publication resumed after the demand for clarification of the bomb threat by those responsible fails to clarify the matter on February 18. The EGM and the AMWJU also urged the government to nab those culprits within 48 hours starting from Feb 15. Still police are yet to arrest those miscreants.

As per resolution adopted today, journalists under AMWJU and EGM will down pen and stage protest for 2 days. The meeting also resolved to urge Civil society organisations to support the protest of the journalists.
