As the Dantewada naxal attack claimed the life of a Doordarshan cameraperson besides two security personnel, self recorded video of another media crew has surfaced now.
The video was recorded by the Doordarshan camera assistant, who at the time was amongst those trapped in the cross fire.
The journalist is heard saying that he loves his mother very much and wants her to know this just in case he does not make it alive out of that situation.
In the video, DD assistant cameraperson assistant Mukut Sharma voiced his doubt that he may not survive the attack.
In the brief video, gunshots too are heard multiple times in the background.
It need be mentioned that apart from Mukut Sharma, the media crew included reporter Dhiraj Kumar and cameraperson Achutyananda Sahu.
Achyutanand Sahu was the only one who did not make it alive out of the situation.
It is believed that the naxal attack took place as they were unhappy over the construction of a new road in the area that had led to an increased connectivity in the region.
It need be mentioned that even Dantewada SP Abhishek Pallav too broke down while interacting with the media just after the encounter took place.>
