BBC Journalist "disappears" from army barracks in Nepal

A war against journalist stripping them of their rights in Nepal could be turning deadly.
A BBC journalist had been going down to India to report. After his name and loc was mentioned on the air he was called into the army to talk. It has been confirmed that he is now missing.

The IFJ issued a statement saying BBC representative Netra KC had "disappeared" after being called to the army barracks in Nepalgunj.

The BBC anchor had mentioned its Nepal stringer, Netra KC, by name. He also mentioned the fact that since telephone lines were disconnected in Nepal, KC was nipping across the border into India to make calls.
