DOTI, Oct 22: The whereabouts of local journalist Tej Bahadur Khadka ‘Teju’ are still not known almost two months since he went missing from a religious fair at Budhinanda of Bajura district.
He went missing on August 25 while returning home after attending the religious fair at Budhinanda.
Journalists of Doti district have alleged that the government bodies have not been keen on searching for the missing journalist. They have also blamed the ‘mission team’ which was formed for searching for Khadka and investigating the circumstances of his disappearance of negligence.
Nepal Press Union had formed a ‘mission team’ led by its central president Badri Sigdel some months back to conduct a search for the missing journalist. The mission team had planned to visit Bajura district via Dhangadhi on a fact-finding mission but it has not so far gone to Bajura.
Khadka is the founder president of Nepal Press Union Doti branch. The Union’s district president Prakash Bom said they have urged various bodies to pay attention in the search for the missing journalist. RSS
