Nepal parliament raises concern over journalist’s abduction by MaoistsNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:05 am ICT by admin
The lawmakers described the abduction as a serious threat to freedom of expression.
They demanded Sitaula to immediately inform the parliament about the abduction episode.
In his reply, Situala said the government has taken the abduction of a working journalist as “an attack on democracy”.
He said that the police investigation was underway, and added that the House would be informed as soon as the investigation report was made available.
CPN-Maoist parliamentary party chief Krishna Mahara said his party was ready to take action against party workers if found guilty of kidnapping Shah.
Mahara also said that party chairman Prachanda had issued a strong directive to party cadres on Wednesday not to engage in such activities.
Shah, who is the correspondent of Nepal FM and Avenues Television, was abducted from Bara on Sunday. (ANI)
