Gilgit (PoK): Journalists and media personnel in illegally occupied Gilgit Baltistan took to the streets against police brutality. The demonstration was carried out after a journalist was tortured by police while reporting from the ground amid the COVID-19 lockdown. Journalists say that the government has issued special passes to media personnel to report during a pandemic but police are not letting them do their duties. Several incidents of police brutality and uncooperative behavior have been reported. Protestors demand an apology from the police for their high handedness. Press freedom has been at its lowest in Gilgit Baltistan. The state of Pakistan which controls the region has put sanctions against the media and anybody daring to go against them is booked under draconian sections. Journalism seems to have died under the autocratic rule in the region and there seems no hope at the end of the tunnel with Islamabad only tightening the noose around the civil liberties and human rights of people.
