Puri: A tourist sustained critical injury after being beaten up by a group of photographers at Puri sea beach on Saturday following a dispute over photography fee payment.
The injured has been identified as Balaram Mahalik of Jajpur district.
Balaram, who visited the religious town last afternoon along with his family, had reportedly got some photographs clicked by a photographer available at the sea beach. However, a verbal duel erupted between the two sides over payment at a later stage and around 10 to 20 photographers attacked Balaram in a fit of rage. The attackers even didn’t spare his family members and manhandled them for quite some time.
The victim sustained critical head injury in the attack and was rushed to Puri Hospital by his family members.
The Sea Beach Police have registered a case in the incident and have started investigation.
