According to reports, when she asked a question, Malik lost his cool and broke her phone and also assaulted camera person Vinod, before throwing them out.

"Is this journalism? The Indian media has raped journalistic ethics", he said.

Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front chief Yasin Malik has reportedly assaulted news channel journalist who went to Malik's residence to seek a reaction on her ongoing investigation on Kashmir unrest.

Muhammad Yasin Malik addressing a news conference at his Abi Guzar office in Srinagar said, "I was sleeping when an Indian female TV journalist Kamaljit Sandu barged into my bedroom. The fact is she never called for an appointment", Malik told a crowded press conference here. "The law will take its own course", he said.

In a reference to the recent India Today sting operation on pro-freedom leaders Nayeem Khan and Farooq Dar, Malik said that the Kashmir struggle was like "prayer" for them and they would never compromise on it.
