Protesting farmers reportedly abuse journalist at Jantar Mantar

According to reports, some of the farmers protesting at Jantar Mantar abused journalists present at the site. Bharatiya Janata Party's Amit Malviya tweeted that there is little doubt that this protest is not what it portrays to be - targeting media, vandalising the Red Fort during sowing and harvesting season. A TV18 journalist, Nagendra, was attacked by a lady protester with a stick while reporting on the ground. In a video, the journalist showing his injuries can be heard saying, “A female journalist who was reporting with us tried interviewing the protestors when a female protestor got abusive. When a couple of us went to talk to her she tried smashing my head with a stick”. Watch the full video to know the whole story!
