On Wednesday, Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi told reporters that Vikram has been issued summons asking him to appear before the police team investigating the assault at Patiala House Courts.

“A few media people were possibly caught in between as we were beating people who recorded videos. But when we realised they were from the media, we asked them to leave,” Vikram told The Indian Express.
