Hindu Samhati Mancha president Tapan Ghosh and three others were booked on charges of attempt to murder, causing grievous injury with weapons among others, a Kolkata Police officer said.

The journalists were attacked when they tried to talk to a family of 14 members that had apparently converted to Hinduism at the programme organised by the Mancha.

Political parties including the BJP condemned the attack on media persons.
