This behavior of the anchor allegedly caught the wrath of the protesters and they gave it back (no full video proof yet) to her as it came. Soon, Bairavi Singh started to cry victim about the incident, as we can make out from her following Tweets.

 

There were people from all the religion in the march. But, the journalist brings in the religion card from nowhere!

And in the following tweet, she reveals that she was present there to give her point of view and not to report the news.

 

An artist named Giti Thadani present in the protest march alleges that the NDTV journalist also provocated the people present around by calling them names.

This incident reminds us of Rajdeep Sardesai slap gate incident in the US, when PM Modi was touring the US. Sardesai was asking people around the Madison Garden whether they were paid to participate in the incident. This turned into an ugly brawl between Rajdeep Sardesai and Modi supporters.

Rajdeep Sardesai expressed full solidarity with the NDTV journalist.

The above incident looks as if it was designed to malign Modi and the mandate that elected him in the full majority in May, 2014.
