Reverse shutting down KPC: CPJ

New Delhi: The Committee to Protect Journalists called on authorities in Jammu and Kashmir to reverse moves in recent days to shut down the Kashmir Press Club (KPC).
The authorities suspended the club’s registration and cancelled the allotment for its government-owned premises in Srinagar, effectively closing down the journalists’ group.
“Suspending Kashmir Press Club’s registration and taking over its premises is the latest move by the Jammu and Kashmir administration to prevent journalists from doing their jobs,” said Steven Butler, CPJ’s Asia program coordinator, in Washington. “Jammu and Kashmir authorities should immediately allow the Kashmir Press Club to resume operations and stop its repeated harassment of journalists in the territory.”
