GUWAHATI, Sept 20 � The Journalists� Forum Assam (JFA) has urged the State police chief Khagen Sarma to take
initiative to nab the culprit who threatened cartoonist Champak Barbara, working with the Assam Tribune Group, over phone.
Expressing serious concern over the incident, the scribes� body said that the police must ensure the safety and security of the journalists, who raise voice against anti-social elements. �Though a complaint has been lodged in this regard, the police is yet to achieve any breakthrough after several days of the incident. In any situation, threats to a working journalist are not acceptable for us,� a statement from the JFA stated.
