Tata Sons issues apology after Cyrus Mistry's security personnel rough up photojournalists

On 4 November, a fight broke out between security personnel and photographers at Bombay House, while they were trying to click pictures of ousted Tata Sons Chairman Cyrus Mistry.

A photographer was reportedly badly injured during the tussle ahead of the board meeting of Tata group firm Indian Hotels Company Ltd.

As soon as Mistry arrived at the Tata group headquarters to chair a board meeting to consider quarterly financial performance of the company, photographers went beyond the cordoned-off area to click his pictures.

In a bid to control the situation, the security personnel roughed up the photographers, injuring one belonging to the Times of India.

In a statement soon after the scuffle, Tata Sons said, "We deeply regret about the incident during the entry of certain board directors today & apologize to press & their families."

Later on, the situation was brought under control with the intervention of police from Mata Ramabai Police station. Four security guards and three photographers were taken for medical check up.
