Kashmir editors criticise govt for gag order
The Kashmir Editors' Guild today condemned the government for stopping publication of daily newspapers in the Valley, following hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru.
"We condemn the government's unofficial gag order on Kashmir media," a spokesman of the KEG said.
He claimed police teams visited various printing presses of daily newspapers and asked the management to stop publishing.
The spokesman said police seized all copies of those dailies which managed to publish their editions last night.
Mohammed Afzal Guru, convicted of involvement in the audacious attack on Parliament in 2001, was hanged yesterday and buried in Delhi's Tihar Jail, six days after a mercy plea was rejected by the President.
