Talking to Freedom Forum’s Media Monitoring Desk, Bibhu Adhikari, reporter
with the News 24 Television, said, “Although we (I, Resham Tiwari of Nepal Television, Binod
Pyakurel of Tarai Television, Basanta Khatiwada of Ghatana Ra Bichar weekly and Prakash
Lamsal of Image Television) were called to make news, some of the followers and protectors
including Darshan Limbu, Bolhari Rai, and a German national beat us, seized our cameras and
damaged the reels while taking photographs about Bamjan who was being made public for
sermon after meditation.”
The followers of Bamjan also spoke foul on them, he said, adding that they reached to the
police for help.
It is the latest incident as a series of attack and threats on journalists from different quarters.
The incident is condemnable as it is the incident of press freedom violation. The local
administration needs to mete out action on those who beat up journalists so that it would help
minimize impunity and make journalists feel justice.

Buddha boy says he slapped villagers for disturbing him

Ram Bahadur Bomjon, a youth meditating in the jungles of Bara since five years and widely known as Buddha boy, has said he beat up the villagers for disturbing him and trying to disrupt his meditation

Speaking to a team of police and journalists who had gone to Halkhoriya forest of Bara, where Bomjon meditates, to inquire him on charges of beating up villagers, Bomjon conceded he beat up villagers.

“They came to the place where I was meditating and tried to disturb me by making noise, smoking and mimicking me. So, I slapped them as a punishment,” said Bomjon.

Bomjon had beat up 17 villagers of a nearby Manaharwa village who had come to the jungle to collect fodder. A police squad went to Bomjon’s place with journalists when the villagers filed a complaint at the District Police Office, Bara. The villagers have accused Bomjon and his aides of detaining them and beating them.

Bomjon denied the charges that he took the villagers in control and beat them severely. nepalnews.com
