After being ‘abused, accused of biased reporting’, media persons boycott presser called by Sikh body in Srinagar

Srinagar: Media personnel boycotted a press conference of a Sikh body after some Sikhs tried to manhandle them before the start of the presser in Kashmir capital Srinagar.

Sikhs belonging to different Gurudwara committees were scheduled to hold a press conference at Gurudwara Shaheed Bunga Sahib, Baghat Barzulla at 11: 00 am, today. The organizers had requested media personnel to cover the presser. An invitation was extended to the media by Santpal Singh, President Gurudwara Prabandak Committee Budgam.

Before the start of the press conference, some Sikhs accused media of bias reporting related to Rainawari incident and alleged that “four Sikh girls are still missing, forcibly converted and the media is not reporting about these episodes”.
