As per reports, a Congress leader was involved in a brutal assault on a journalist in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. Congress politicians and builders, Satyam Jain, and Mayur Jain attacked People Observer Weekly’s journalist, Alok Diwakar, and thrashed him brutally.
The video of the assault has gone viral on social media. In the video, which has been accessed by OpIndia.com, the goons can be seen stripping the journalist naked after having thrashed him. At the end of the video, the journalist was lying down on the road, naked, and bleeding profusely.
The reason for the outrageous assault is believed to be Diwakar’s negative reportage of Satyam Jain. His reportage elicited the wrath of the Congress leader who then attacked him on his way back home from the office.
The Police has acknowledged that a complaint has been filed against the Congress leaders, Satyam Jain and Mayur Jain, who are also brothers, by Diwakar for the assault. Taking his complaint under consideration, the Police has initiated an investigation into the matter. The police also confirmed that the journalist invited the Congress leaders’ wrath because of “dispute over some news”.
It is rather shocking that not a word has been uttered by the media fraternity about this heinous assault on a journalist by Congress leaders.
