Ramaroshan FM Station Padlocked

A group of people from Achham district headquarters Mangalsen captured and padlocked the transmission station of Radio Ramaroshan, the only community radio in the district at Thulasain of Janalibandali VDC December 8, Monday. The radio management claimed that liquor traders padlocked the station with the help of police as the radio recently broadcast news of free alcohol trading in Achham, a dry district. They also blamed police for being mere spectators in the incident.

The radio transmission was halted for an indefinite period from Monday due to the padlocking.   

Freedom Forum terms this incident a severe violation of press freedom that serves as an example of deteriorating media situation in Nepal. The Forum asks the concerned authority to book the guilty and take stern actions according to the law.
