“Unconditional apologies to Wion reporter for what happened this morning. Deeply regret a moment of unacceptable conduct. Begging forgiveness. Regards,” he tweeted.

The WION journalist replied to his tweet and it can be clearly made out from her tweet that she did not accept his apology.

“My name is Nischita Verrendra. It’s hard to believe this apology since you told me and I quote ‘Yes, I don’t have decency on field’ and ‘you are not worth being manhandled’. So let’s just accept that we have an indecent reporter amidst us,” she wrote on Twitter.
