KEG condemns ‘use of force’ against 3 journalists in Pulwama

Srinagar: Kashmir Editors’ Guild (KEG) has condemned the use of force against the scribes who were covering the gun battle at Marwal in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

At least one of them, Kamran Yousuf, was injured in the attack by the cops. Kamran works for a Delhi based news portal.

Kamran told reporters that he had gone to cover the gunfight and well before he could start work, armed forces personnel asked him to go away. As he was moving away from the spot, a group of policemen headed by a DySP rank police officer pounced upon him without any reason and beat him ruthlessly. He somehow fled and reached the hospital with the help of his colleagues where the doctors treated him. He will have to stay bed-ridden for many days owing to his leg injury, the KEG spokesman said in a statement.
