Vikas Yadav, the main accused in Nitish Katara murder case, on Tuesday, slapped a photo-journalist in Patiala House Court complex in New Delhi, triggering vehement protests from the media.
Vikas was on his way to the court lock-up after being produced before the Additional Sessions Judge Ravinder Kaur, who is hearing Katara murder case.
Bharti Yadav's brother, a key witness in the case, got agitated as the waiting photo-journalists started clicking.
He slapped a cameraman of a yet-to-be launched newspaper. The journalists, while condemning the action, are contemplating lodging a formal complaint in this regard.
The court was hearing Katara murder case in which Vikas and Vishal, son and nephew of controversial Uttar Pradesh politician DP Yadav, are the main accused.
