‘The Hindu’ apologises for wrong reportage

New Delhi: Days after the deadly stampede in Mumbai’s Elphinstone station which claimed 23 lives,  The Hindu on Wednesday has withdrawn its report about the alleged molestation of a woman victim of the stampede at the Elphinstone Road railway station on Friday morning which killed 23 people.

The newspaper on Wednesday issued an apology in which it states that an examination of the video clip which had earlier been tweeted by The Hindu‘s Vedika Chaubey did not warrant a conclusion that any such molestation took place.

The report titled ‘Dying woman molested, video shows’ (October 1, Mumbai edition) by Vedika Chaubey stated that a video clip showed a bystander molesting a woman who was breathing her last in the stampede at Elphinstone station.
