Gallery of rogues: These are the pictures Tarique Anwar clicked before he was assaulted

Firstpost's Tarique Anwar was at the Patiala House Court on Wednesday before all hell broke loose.

"There were two groups of lawyers. One was shouting slogans like Gaddaron ko bahar karo, and there was another group who supported the JNU student and were yelling 'Kanhaiya tum sangharsh karo hum tumhare saath hain.' I went inside and stood next to the police. I took out my phone to send an update to the office and saw the scuffle between the two groups. I took a photo when the group of lawyers protesting against Kanhaiya took my phone, deleted the photo and took me inside and assaulted me. All this happened in front of the Delhi police."

According to Anwar, Delhi police officers who were standing inside the court premises didn't even blink, instead they stood and watched and told Anwar, "Aap yahan rukiye." He added that one of the Delhi police officials was of ACP rank and Tarique escaped only when other journalists raised an alarm and asked the police to let him go.

Here are the pictures he was able to take before the lawyers grabbed his phone:
