A fight broke out between journalists of two news channels at Gateway of India on Thursday morning.
Pradeep Bhandari, who is associated with Republic news channel, alleged he was slapped by a journalist from another news channel.
In a video of the incident, which has gone viral on Twitter, Bhandari is seen being pushed by a man who also attempts to slap him. The confrontation happened before a Mumbai Police team which was seen trying to break what looked like an argument. It is unclear what led to the confrontation.
Bhandari later tweeted that “goons” claiming to be associated with two TV channels slapped him as they were “frustrated” with the exposes in the drug case being pursued by the NCB.
No police complaint had been registered and there was no statement released from other news channels as yet.
