Journalists Mrityunjay Yellappamath (Chikkodi) and Raju Ustad (Belgaum) both from Kannada Prabha were beaten up on Wednesday in Hanuman Nagar over a subaltern issue allegedly by some group of youth.

The police have arrested four persons following a complaint by the journalists at the APMC police station. 

The incident occurred when the journalists turned from the main road towards Hanuman Nagar 2nd Stage, a car came towards them from the wrong side, as the road on the other side of the median was being repaired and the journalists gestured to the car to keep driving. Occupants of the car took offense and one of the youths came out of the car and picked an argument with them and later called in more friends.
