Police thrash Uzma scribe
Srinagar, Aug 28: Attacks on the media persons continue despite assurances from the Government. Police Saturday beat up Riyaz Malik, correspondent with Greater Kashmir’s sister publication Kashmir Umza.
Malik was on way to office from Raj Bagh when a party from police station Kothi Bagh stopped him near Zero Bridge and beat him up without any reason.
“I told them that I am a journalist and have a curfew pass,” Malik said. “They abused me and thrashed me,” he said.
Malik received injuries in arms and other body parts.
Last month personnel from the same police station roughed up another Kashmir Uzma correspondent, Showkat Hamid, near Regal Chowk.
Meanwhile, the police Saturday restricted movement of journalists around the TRC ground saying that they had instructions from the government to not allow the media persons to move around the TRC ground here.
