The police also allegedly manhandled jouranalists who were there to cover the protest.

The statement came after condemnation from several quarters of the alleged manhandling by the Delhi Police of a woman journalist covering the JNU protests on Friday.

"Yesterday's incident was a very unfortunate one".

A day after a Delhi photojournalist, covering JNU padyatra (protest march), was molested by Delhi Cantt SHO police, a sit in protest was carried out by media professionals this afternoon outside the Delhi police headquarters to protest Delhi Police personnel roughing up with the journalist. Our intention wasn't to obstruct the media from doing its job.

Delhi Police has tendered their "deepest apologies" for the attack on the two media personnel and ordered an inquiry into the incident.

The police has urged the journalists to call off their proposed protest outside the police headquarters.

According to media reports, Anushree Fadnavis, a Hindustan Times photojournalist, was not only roughed up by the policewomen but her camera was also snatched away, reports said. Delhi police and me personally have always maintained that the media is an integral part of our democracy.

A view of cameras kept on ground by journalists in an attempt to show their agitation against the alleged assault on a woman journalist and a woman photographer in JNU campus, in New Delhi on Saturday.

"Never thought I would be manhandled by lady Delhi police officers while doing my job".

Friday's protest march to the Parliament was organised by JNU students and members of members of JNU Teachers'Association (JNUTU) over various demands, including academic freedom and suspending Professor Atul Johri - accused of sexual molestation. The students demanded that they should be arrested.

He further requested the protestors to call off the protest and asked them to meet him at the PRO office to resolve the matter.
