While Suvendu Adhikari escaped unhurt, the goons attacked the media vehicles trailing him causing injury to a journalist. India TV reporter Pawan Nara sustained injuries on his forehead in an attack on their car which was hit by bricks and stones by the goons.

Suvendu Adhikari while speaking to an India TV reporter informed that there are warrants issued against the miscreants however they have been declared ‘absconding’ in the report filed by the police. He also added that he was aware of the alleged attack being planned on his convoy and that he was supposed to travel by a different route.

India Today too has reported an attack on its media personnel with bricks and bamboo sticks in Keshpur in Paschim Medinipur.
