Sub-inspector accused of misbehaving with Journalist while reporting in Humla's Airport


Karnali, Humla, Simkot

The sub-Inspector deployed at Humla airport misbehaved with Narjan Tamang, a district reporter of Naya Patrika National Daily while going to report about hundreds of passengers being stranded at Simikot Airport due to not getting the flight tickets. He was misbehaved by the policeman when he tried to click pictures of people at the gate of the airport.

The locals blamed the staff of airline companies to have distributed the tickets based on influence and access. However, the local government, elected representatives and related stakeholders haven't spoken anything about it. The locals sit in a line in front of the airline's office every day as early as 4 am for tickets. But still, the tickets are not guaranteed.
