Volunteers at the Sourabhee show at the DDSC stadium on Tuesday evening ran amok, assaulting and abusing all and sundry including press persons. Even the reporter of this newspaper was jostled, assaulted and abused despite the fact that this newspaper had extended help as media partner towards the project of the organizers. Another photographer of the Morung Express along with the cameraman of local channel Global Chapter were pushed out without any courtesy. When media persons said they came to cover the event, some of the volunteers shot back “ Even if you’re from the media, so what?” The organizers were informed about the unruly behaviour of their enforcers but did nothing. Later, IRB on duty had to fire five blank shots to control the crowd which became as unruly as the volunteers. Local media persons have taken a strong exception to the high handed behaviour of the volunteers and have decided not to carry any report of the show.
