The journalists Pushka Bhatt and Aishwarya Kunwar who were arrested over alleged ‘cyber crime’ in Kanchanpur have been released owing to pressure from fellow journalists and civil society organizations.

In the late night on February 14, they were released on a condition that they will be in contact for further investigation. Their case is ongoing at the District court.

FF’s representative Min Bam further informed that recently appointed SP Chakraraj Joshi assured the journalists that their case would be solved under district attorney’s jurisdiction thus, ensuring justice to them.

Earlier, FF had monitored the arrest and demanded immediate and safe release of the journalists.
