Srinagar: Due to the curbs imposed by the government on media, newspapers could not bring out their print editions for second consecutive day on Friday.
Newspapers failed to hit the stands for the second day today in the Kashmir in the wake of the restrictions.
Restrictions on movement of media persons in the wake of curfew in Srinagar and certain other parts of the valley were today lifted by the state government which issued fresh curfew passes to them. Media persons can perform their official duties, an official said.
“We were only enforcing the curfew strictly”, they said.
The authorities on Wednesday July 07 cancelled all curfew passes for media personnel upsetting their movement.
The Editor’s Guild yesterday asked the state Government not to impose restrictions on the media which prevents them from carrying out their duties.
“The guild is concerned over incidents of police high-handedness towards the media during the recent unrest in the valley,” it had said in a guild statement.
