PRESS RELEASE

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 11, 2009

Issued by Dimapur Press Club

Media persons in Dimapur(Nagaland) are continually becoming victims of antisocial elements/miscreants for the past many months, which are evident from the recent incidents of vehicle thefts and other items.

In a recent incident, a Video Cameras and still Camera, besides other valuable items belonging to NETV Journalist, Pradeep Pareek was stolen from his car by unidentified miscreants on 8th September at around 6.30 p.m. from busy Nyamo Lotha Road. The miscreants had broken the rear window glass of his vehicle and after opening the door, took away the bag containing the Cameras.

An FIR to this effect was lodged in East PS, but the lost materials are yet to be recovered.

It may be mentioned here that on August 28, a motorcycle belonging to a Reporter of Nagaland Post was stolen from Nagarjan area, but till date it has not been recovered.

Earlier this year, the office of the Dimapur Press Club was burgled, where the miscreants took away all the office furniture, fans etc. Here too, no recovery was made.

While petty crimes of snatching, lifting of vehicles etc. are becoming the order of the day, targeting the members of Fourth Estate has become a serious matter.

Expressing concern over the recent incidents, where members of Dimapur Press Club have become victims of unidentified miscreants, the DPC vehemently condemns those who have committed the crime. At the same time, the DPC request the law enforcing agencies to step up vigil in Dimapur town to prevent such occurrences.

Further, the DPC appeals to the Dimapur Police to take these incidents seriously and initiate necessary exercises to nab the culprits and recover the stolen items.
