One of the journalists said that their vehicle was badly damaged by the miscreants during the attack.

"We thank God because if the attack was successfully executed, our organization would have been burying seven of their dedicated staff but thank God we survived by the whisker. We ran into a road block which we all thought was manned by the police and vigilante just to be descended upon by the miscreants who came out from every direction." he said.
