The Journalists Union of Assam also urges the State Government to issue officially approved Press jackets to journalists so that genuine journalists can be easily identified.

Journalists Union of Assam(JUA) urges the authorities to confirm such person credentials before they engage such persons in documenting such sensitive incidences.”

He added, “We also urge the Assam state government, particularly the district administrations, to sensitise the police personnel as to how to deal with such a sensitive exercise as the eviction of people from their occupied lands. Such a barbaric act by the photographer could have been avoided had the police personnel acted in accordance with professional ethics.”
