New Delhi: After Headlines Today broke a story on saffron terror, suspected RSS workers attacked TV Today office here on Friday in retaliation.
The activists tried to barge into the building. But they were prevented from entering the offices of the media house. The TV Today’s Hindi channel Aaj Tak had recently reported the alleged links of some RSS activists to Mecca Masjid blast accused. They had even done a sting operation on senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar.
In a blatant attack on the media’s freedom of speech and expression, the activists broke glass panes and destroyed property in the process. A large mob gathered outside the office building and shouted slogans in support of their leaders exposed by Headlines Today’s expose.
The mob held up the streets leading to the building, not allowing traffic and creating panic among bystanders.
About 100 attackers entered Videocon Towers at about 5 pm, claimed to be RSS workers and broke furniture on the ground floor and attacked at least one camera person.
Police have arrived on the scene and used force to control the mob.
