Later, the journalist alleged that he was subjected to torture. According to ANI, the journalist associated with a news channel, said, “They were in plain clothes. One hit my camera and it fell down. When I picked it up they hit and abused me. I was locked up, stripped and they urinated in my mouth.”
The journalist was allegedly thrashed when he was covering a train derailment in Dhimanpura on Tuesday night.
The journalist was reportedly dragged to the Government Railway Police (GRP) police station in Shamli and put behind the bars. He remained detained for the night while an order has been issued to release him on Wednesday morning.
The journalist told his colleagues who were protesting at the police station that he was being subjected to this torture because of a negative story he did on the railway police force.
