JFA demands probe into suspected assault on scribe

Guwahati, 24 November 2019: Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) expresses
concern at the suspected assault by miscreants on city-based scribe
Naresh Mitra, who works for Times of India, and demands proper
investigation into the accident that took place on Friday night in the
city.
On that fateful night after completing his works in TOI office, Naresh
went home by his modified bi-cycle at around 10.30 pm and he was
later recovered in an unconscious condition inside the city. Initially
Naresh was admitted in GMCH but later his family shifted him to
Nemcare hospital.
The senior journalist, widely known for his frequent environmental
reporting, has received injuries on his head. He is still in the ICU
and an operation was conducted on Sunday morning. Attending doctors
informed his close relatives that it may not be a simple case of
accident. They apprehend it as an assault case by miscreants.
“We strongly demand a high-level probe into the incident where Naresh
got injured on that night. Moreover, we wish his early recovery and
express hope that soon he would regain full consciousness and be able
to explain the event,” said a statement issued by JFA president Rupam
Barua and secretary Nava Thakuria.
