Was the area really waterlogged or did the channel staff play camera tricks to mislead viewers by reporting in neck-deep water? When the people of Delhi spotted this journalist reporting in their vicinity, they took to record his video as they found something fishy. It was learned that despite a clear roadway on the other side which barely showed any signs of flooding in the area, he jumped to the space below a skywalk that was waterlogged.

Another video doing rounds the internet this Saturday exposed how the reporter manipulated his news report on the Delhi floods. Soon after learning the exact scenario, people slammed the reporter for his "drama."
