Journalist, Mitali Chandola, suffered bullet injury after two bike-borne intercepted her car and fired at her in East Delhi’s Ashok Nagar. She was alone and was going home.
“Mitali Chandola was driving alone near Dharamshilla Cancer Hospital when two bike-borne men intercepted her car and opened fire from the front. At least three bullets were fired, two hit and pierced the car’s front windshield. Eggs were also thrown at her car. One bullet hit her right arm. The woman was admitted to a nearby hospital. She will be shifted to AIIMS for surgery,” Joint commissioner of police (eastern range) Alok Kumar.
Chandola works in a television channel in Noida, according to ANI.
Alok Kumar said an attempt to murder case has been registered at the New Ashok Nagar police station. The backstory has not been explored yet and police is considering all the angles. This shows how secure our women and journalists are in the country.
Attack on journalists have become quite frequent. It seems like the Dark Age for the journalists in India has begun. Few days ago, journalists were arrested in Noida for “unacceptable” comments on Yogi Adityanath. Another incident saw the atrocities faced by a reporter, who was investigated a minor train accident. Now, this incident certainly proves the above statement on the Dark Ages for journalists.
