Looking at various contradictory reports coming out from the mainstream media, the police and the
government as to what happened on India Gate on
, 2012, Mediakraft (producers of the much acclaimed documentary series "6.9 Sikkim Rising") announced that it has released a short 12-minute newsreel documentary on YouTube. The newsreel was shot at India Gate on 23
December, 2012 as violent clashes took place between the police and the anti-rape protesters in which 150 people got injured. Sadly one
, lost his life amidst the clashes; he suffered a cardiac arrest on the same day in the middle of the clashes between the police and the protesters.
Aditya Basu, who is the MD of Mediakraft, was visiting India Gate on
, 2012 to take some pictures of the peaceful protest that was taking place there and to sign the white cloth that was laid down at India Gate to show solidarity with the
gang rape victim and the victim's family. After reaching India Gate and while covering the peaceful protests he heard random tear gas canisters bursting at a distance and decided to investigate the matter further.
The short 12-minute eyewitness documentary has been compiled from stills and video footage that he collected on that day as the clashes took place between the police and the protesters at India Gate that afternoon.
