On November 19 Suryavanshi, a TV channel representative, had gone to Tarana by car from Ujjain to make news. On reaching Tarana, the unknown bike rider intentionally rammed the bike in front of the car. 

When the reporter got down from the car and asked the reason for hitting the bike, the unknown miscreants hurled abuses and looted money. When he retaliated, the miscreants took the reporter to the other side of the road and beat him with sticks, kicking and punching. Locals made a video of the incident which went viral on social media.
