Imphal: The All Manipur Working Journalists' Union (AMWJU) and Editors' Guild Manipur (EGM)

On Tuesday condemned the detention of journalist Kishorchandra Wangkhem under the stringent National Security Act (NSA).

The AMWJU and EGM held a joint special general body meeting on Tuesday at the Manipur Press Club, in Imphal.

The District Magistrate of Imphal West had ordered detention of the 39-year-old journalist who works for a local TV channel, on November 27 after he allegedly uploaded videos criticising the BJP-led governments in Manipur and the Centre, for observing Rani Jhansi's birth anniversary.

Wangkhem will remain in detention for 12 months, according to a Manipur government order which said his activities were "prejudicial to the security of the state and maintenance of public order".
