A shocking incident of police brutality against a journalist has been reported in Punjab after two Punjab policemen thrashed scribe Major Singh while he was on duty.

According to the reports, 52-year-old Major Singh is as a correspondent for Rozana Pehredar from Mohali and Chandigarh. Singh was reporting a clash, which broke out between two groups at Gurdwara Kalghidhar Sahib. The journalist had captured the video of the incident, to which Punjab police objected, leading to an argument with the scribe.
