Guwahati: The Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) expressed concern on Friday over an incident of alleged eve-teasing of a senior woman journalist near the Guwahati Press Club.
The incident happened on Monday evening when the journalist was walking towards her car, parked near the Club, after attending a function at the nearby Rabindra Bhawan. A group of young men allegedly made 21 comments at her from inside a parked car, following which she protested and was about to take their photograph when they sped away, a statement issued by the JFA said.
“We are really shocked that the people inside the vehicle dared to verbally humiliate a journalist. It shows their audacity to target women anywhere and at any time as they perhaps believe that nobody can punish them,” said JFA secretary Nava Thakuria. (PTI)
