LAHORE—Asma Jahangir Legal Aid Cell and voicepk.net have strongly condemned the physical assault on two of their reporters by the Model Town Police.
The journalists visited the police station to report on DJ Butt’s arrest on Wednesday and obtain a copy of the FIR.
Model Town Police Station SHO Azhar Naveed reportedly misbehaved with the reporters and abused them. The police officials snatched their cell phones and forcibly deleted data on their devices. They also threatened to arrest the reporters.
Voicepk.net has called upon the inspector general of police, Punjab, and the capital city police officer, Lahore, to take action against those responsible for the assault.
Voicepk.net is filing a separate police complaint against the Model Town Police officials.
The Asma Jahangir Law Firm and voicepk.net reiterate that they would not be intimidated or threatened with such assaults on press freedom.
