The police on Tuesday arrested 10 people from Jalandhar's Sodhal area for allegedly attacking a correspondent with a national television channel with kirpans when he attempted to shield a girl, who was reportedly being molested by suspected SAD activists in the busy Bhagat Singh Market.
While the accused were sent to judicial custody, the police will move an application in the court on Wednesday demanding police remand of the accused.
The incident occurred around 6 pm on Monday, when the girl — an employee at the MBD Market — was returning home on foot after office hours. She was allegedly caught by three 'drunk' youth, who allegedly began molesting her. NDTV correspondent, Ashwini Malhotra, who was passing through the market, managed to save her but suffered injuries.
