Vikas Yadav, the main accused in the Nitish Katara murder case, slapped a photojournalist in Patiala House Court Complex on Tuesday, triggering vehement protest from the media.

Vikas was on his way to the court lock-up after being produced before the Additional Sessions Judge Ravinder Kaur, who is hearing the Katara murder case.
