Sahayatra, a social organization, organized an event here today and honoured late journalist Bishwokarma with the honour instituted in memory of human rights defender late Resham Bahadur Sunar. The award carries a purse of Rs 51,000.

Bishwakarma, associated with TV Today television, died at Patan Hospital in Lalitpur on January 20 this year after he was suddenly ill.
