APJA condemns police atrocities on photojournalists on duty

The Assam Photo Journalist Association (APJA) has condemned the police lathi-charge on a number of photojournalists, who were on duty to cover the KMSS demonstration at Dispur last gate today. The police personnel resorted to lathi-charge on the agitating KMSS activists and they did not also spare the photojournalists on the location.

The APJA has warned the police administration o keep away their personnel from attacking the journalists in feature. The police attacked the media persons so that they can evade the coverage of their barbaric actions on the agitators. The injured photojournalists include Biju Boro, Rebo Borah, Dibyajyoti Das Rava, Banajit Bhuyan, Rupjyoti Sarma with others.
