Delhi: ABP journalist’s car attacked by bike-borne assailants at Barapullah flyover, three shots fired

The team alleged that they approached the police patrol at INA metro station and narrated the entire incident. However, instead of helping them out, or informing other stations, the cops removed the barricades and left.

An ABP News reporting team was attacked by two bike-borne assailants on the Barapullah flyover in Delhi, at wee hours of Sunday while the team was heading for a night shoot.

The gunmen shot three rounds of bullets at the vehicle carrying its reporter, cameraperson and the driver. The bullets hit the car, but the journalists escaped unhurt.

ABP News, an Indian Hindi news channel owned by ABP Group, has raised doubts on the law and order management in Delhi. While the team claimed of receiving a cold shoulder when they reached out to the cops near INA metro station, the Delhi Police has said that a case has been registered and the investigation is underway.

According to the report, the team had received information about the murder of a readymade clothes trader in Delhi’s Prasadnagar and was heading towards the site via the Barapullah flyover when two bike-borne assailants tried to apprehend the unit with a pistol.

They asked the team which comprised of reporter Siddharth Purohit, and cameraperson Arvind Kumar to park the car at a side. The driver was about to stop the car but after Purohit and Kumar’s suggestion, he sped up.

On seeing the car speeding up, the men fired three shots at the car. The first shot hit the driver’s door, while the second one smashed the driver side window pane. The third shot went amiss in air. After this, the assailants followed the team for about half a kilometre after which they fled.

The team alleged that they approached the police patrol at INA metro station and narrated the entire incident. However, instead of helping them out, or informing other stations, the cops removed the barricades and left.

According to the team, the incident took place around 1:30 am and the first call to the Police Control Room was made at 1:33 am. However, police arrived no sooner than 3:05 am after which, formalities regarding complaint were completed.

However, the Delhi police maintained that a case has been registered and investigations were underway.
