ITANAGAR, Sept 4 � The Arunachal Press Club (APC), Arunachal Pradesh Union of Working Journalists (APUWJ) and Arunachal Electronic Media Association (AEMA) have expressed deep concern at the arrest of Assam-based satellite television channel bureau chief Jaiklong Brahma, based at Korajhar, by the Assam police in a vindictive manner.

Reporters of two TV channels at the invitation of an outfit went to their hideout, interviewed them and the footage was flashed by various Assam-based news channels. The Kokrajhar police called Brahma to the police station on Tuesday and arrested him on the charge of having direct nexus with the outfit.

This amounts to gagging the press because of political squabbles in the State, said APC president Chopa Cheda and chief adviser Pradeep Kumar and AEMA president Taro Chatung while extending their support to the media fraternity of Assam.
