LUCKNOW, INDIA, Jan. 27, 2001: At the biggest ever bath during Mauni Amavishya in Allahabad Kumbh festival, police and state paramilitary forces on January 19 went berserk and attacked journalists on duty inside the media centre of the State Government in the Kumbh area. Four journalists are still in a local hospital in Allahabad, with multiple injuries. The government is slow to proceed against the guilty men and could not announce the stipulated compensation to those injured and hospitalized even after the lapse of a week or make good the damage of cameras and equipment of lensmen.
