Rajbiraj, Saptari, Dec 7 / An election candidate has reportedly threatened journalist Raj Kumar Paswan over a news report.
The victim Paswan said Satya Narayan Mandal, a provincial candidate from Saptari constituency 1, called him up and made a threat.
An analytical report about election candidates including Mandal by Paswan was recently published in Kanchanpur-based Kanchanrup weekly, for which he works.
“Mandal called me, and threatened me, saying he would show me my place after the elections,” he said. Meanwhile, President of Saptari chapter of the Federation of Nepali Journalists Jitendra Khadga condemned the threat against Paswan, and sought action against the perpetrator. Despite several efforts, suspect Mandal could not be reached for comment.
