In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K), media bodies have unanimously expressed concern over statement of  Inspector General of Police, Vijay Kumar asking media persons not to come closer to cordon and search operations sites for coverage of such situations.

In a joint statement, twelve media bodies in IIOJ&K said the statement seems to be a part of string of measures taken by authorities to suppress freedom of press in the region.

Meanwhile, talking to media in Srinagar, Vijay Kumar said he has issued written directions to all district SSPs to take legal action in case any media person comes closer to the site of operations.
