WATCH: Punjab police ‘thrash’ journalists covering PTI’s long march in Kamoke

More than two dozen personnel of the Punjab police allegedly thrashed journalists covering the PTI’s long march and damaged their equipment in Kamoke.

According to Express News, the police assaulted the journalists and broke the camera of a private TV channel for parking vehicles and setting up cameras along the Haqeeqi Azadi March route for coverage.

The Kamoke police reportedly assaulted the reporters and cameramen in the presence of a senior official.

The altercation took place when the SP police reportedly asked the media persons to remove their vehicles and DSNGs before the arrival of PTI’s long march caravan.

The police official said the media would only be allowed to park their vehicles after the long march procession arrived in the city.

The incident caused outrage among the journalists and they staged a protest demonstration after which additional police personnel were called in.
