Senior journalist of the wire tweeted about how both of the journalist were allowed to leave when rudraksh was shown to the mob.
Two of my friends @arvindgunasekar and @Saurabh_Unmute were badly beaten for recording a mob burning down a mosque. Saurabh stepped in to save Arvind and had to show his rudraksha to get the mob to let them off. Delhi today is a national shame.
