"At Ground Zero - India Gate", an Eye Witness Account... Released on YouTube

  (December 27, 2012)

NEW DELHI, December 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Mediakraft released a Newsreel Documentary called "At Ground Zero - India Gate" on YouTube. It was filmed while the clash between the protesters and the police took place on December 23rd, in which over 150 people got injured and one person died.

Looking at various contradictory reports coming out from the mainstream media, the police and the Delhi government as to what happened on India Gate on December 23rd, 2012, Mediakraft (producers of the much acclaimed documentary series "6.9 Sikkim Rising") announced that it has released a short 12-minute newsreel documentary on YouTube. The newsreel was shot at India Gate on 23rd December, 2012 as violent clashes took place between the police and the anti-rape protesters in which 150 people got injured. Sadly one Delhi Police Constable, Subhash Tomar, lost his life amidst the clashes; he suffered a cardiac arrest on the same day in the middle of the clashes between the police and the protesters.

Aditya Basu, who is the MD of Mediakraft, was visiting India Gate on December 23rd, 2012 to take some pictures of the peaceful protest that was taking place there and to sign the white cloth that was laid down at India Gate to show solidarity with the Delhi gang rape victim and the victim's family. After reaching India Gate and while covering the peaceful protests he heard random tear gas canisters bursting at a distance and decided to investigate the matter further.

The short 12-minute eyewitness documentary has been compiled from stills and video footage that he collected on that day as the clashes took place between the police and the protesters at India Gate that afternoon.

"I have been hearing various versions of the story from various media outlets and other sources and they are more a hodgepodge collection of events and stories, so I decided to do a newsreel using the video and stills that I collected with my 'point and shoot' digital camera that I was carrying with me, explaining step by step exactly what happened at the time when I was there and when the clashes broke out," said Aditya Basu. "The thing is, people of India should get a ground-level eyewitness account from Ground Zero as to what happened on that day... I hope this newsreel doc will help them to understand the events of the day more clearly as it has fire-balled into a major incident now!"
