New Delhi: Delhi Jama Masjid Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari’s security personnel on Saturday allegedly tried to drag a journalist out of his press meet here.

During the presser, when the local scribe asked Bukhari how many Muslim organisations supported him, his personal security guards held his hands and tried to take him out of the venue.

The man was let off after the other media personnel expressed anger over the incident. Bukhari immediately

tendered an apology to the scribes.

Later, the journalist also claimed that there was a scuffle when he was asked to leave by the guards.
