After militant threat, J&K Police urges media to not publish journalists’ names

Jammu and Kashmir Police on Thursday urged media houses not to publish the names of the journalists mentioned in the threat list by a militant outfit, The Resistance Front (TRF).

“It has been noticed that many media houses are irresponsibly discussing names of journalists regarding the online anonymous threat,” Srinagar Police tweeted.

“Media houses are requested not to fall for sensationalism & to behave responsibly not endangering the safety & security of their fellow journalists (sic),” they added.

Earlier, the TRF issued a threat along with the list of names of journalists working for local news organisations, following which nearly half a dozen journalists quit their jobs.
