Srinagar: New York based, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), an independent watchdog body, has slammed Jammu and Kashmir government over the assault on journalists.

“Obstructing and beating up reporters as they cover elections and demonstrations is a direct attack on press freedom,” the post read.
