SRINAGAR — The Kashmir Editors Guild (KEG) expressed its concern over the pre-dawn NIA raids on Greater Kashmir premises in the Srinagar Press Enclave.

In a statement issued here, KEG said “though NIA after five-hour wait said that the raid was on GK Trust, GK management said that the investigating agency checked the computers and took away the hard drives.”

Kashmir media continues to get targeted, demonized, vilified and raided by both the State and non-State actors for a long time now, KEG said, adding that the Kashmir media has proven record of being a professional institution that maintained textbook objectivity while maintaining its core journalistic values.

“This is despite the adversity of an extraordinary situation and the mounting challenges day in and day out,” it said.

KEG expressed its concern over the mounting costs of being a journalist in Kashmir. It hoped that Kashmir media is permitted to function without hassles and hurdles. “This is in the interest of everybody within and outside Jammu and Kashmir,” it added.
