On Tuesday, NDTV Executive Editor Nidhi Razdan claimed that two of her colleagues were attacked by a mob during the anti-CAA riots in the national capital. Nidhi Razdan had claimed that two NDTV reporters Arvind Gunasekar and Saurabh Shukla were attacked by the mob during their coverage resulting in severe injuries to them. She had claimed that they were beaten after Mob and were only released after the mob realized that the ‘journalists’ were Hindus.

Nidhi Razdan’s claims

NDTV claimed that Arvind Gunasekar, who has a complicated relationship with facts, was circled by a mob that hit him on the face. A lathi was about to be brought down on his head when his colleague, Saurabh Shukla, intervened. The report further claimed that the lathi hit Saurabh instead and he was also punched on the back and the stomach and hit on his leg.

Interestingly, new images posted by one of the ‘journalists’ who claimed he was punched on the back and hit on his leg, shows that neither of the reporters has any signs of injuries.

Soon, netizens took to Twitter to question about the lack of apparent injuries on the three.

In the anti-CAA riots that broke out in the national capital on 24th February, as many as 20 people have lost their lives. One 19-year-old Vivek was attacked by rioters in his own shop and a drill machine was bored into his head. On Monday, another Hindu activist named Vinod was killed by the Muslim mobs in the city during the anti-CAA riots. The body of a Hindu activist was seen being dragged to the far end of a street in Brahmapuri even as the violent Muslim mob passionately shouted slogans of “Nara e Taqbeer, Allahu Akbar”. A bike parked nearby is also seen being torched by the anti-CAA rioters.
