A brief video clip shows that the officer at railway police rushes at Chand Nawab and slapped him while he was reporting.
When asked, the famous reporter said that he was exposing the railway officers who were overcharging from the railway passengers. Upon this, he was stopped to report and beaten after he did not obey them.
As stated by Chand Nawab, despite reduction in railway fares on the occasion of Eid, railway employees were charging the same without giving relief to passengers.
Meanwhile, as the clip aired on TV channels, the act of beating was criticised by not only media but also many celebrities.
Bollywood megastar Salman Khan, whose recent film earned Chand Nawab a great fame as the movie includes the character of a Pakistani reporter Chand Nawab played by Nawazuddin Sidique, has also phoned him and expressed his sympathises. He also condemns the incident.
