New Delhi, 24 September 2021

As per news report of The Indian Express,  the policemen in riot gear almost immediately open fire, and as the protester falls to the ground, keep raining batons on him. As a stain from a wound to his chest appears on his white vest, a man with a camera slung around his neck and a scarf half covering his face approaches him. Later identified as Bijoy Bania, a photographer hired by the district administration to document the government eviction drive, he proceeds to jump on the protester, stomp on him, punch him — and return back to repeat the same — as some policemen try to stop him.
