Mob Attacks Journalists Near Sabarimala, NDTV Crew Blocked By Protesters
NDTV Published on Oct 17, 2018
Armed, masked mobs today targeted women mediapersons who had gone to cover the protests near Kerala's Sabarimala temple. At least four media organisations were targeted -- in some cases in presence of the police. Republic TV's Pooja Prasanna was beaten with sticks, Saritha S Balan from The News Minute was kicked on the spine. Personnel from CNN-News 18 and Aaj Tak were also targeted. NDTV was stopped from covering the protests midway -- reporter Sneha Mary Koshy and cameraperson SP Babu were heckled and asked to leave.
