Television footage shows Singh reporting in a highly excited and enthusiastic manner. He repeatedly bent down to peep inside the large hole drilled to reach the girl. His left foot slipped during one such attempt, when the newsreader in the newsroom apparently shouted his name loudly because his voice could not be heard properly.
The army, that was called to rescue the girl, has been paid by the television channel authorities a handsome amount of money to rescue the reporter before the girl. According to sources, this was done so that the rescued reporter could cover the news of the child being rescued, since the channel has no substitute reporters to go to cover this whole incident. A toilet break at the exact moment had apparently caused the channel’s photographer to miss the videos of the child being rescued, the last time a similar event happened in Madhya Pradesh. Therefore, the channel is eager not to miss it this time.
Our source with the channel said on condition of anonymity, “The CEO wants an alive Vinod Singh to cover the rescue of the girl, whether live or dead. However, efforts are being made to select an insane, noisy and excitable correspondent to be sent to Agra as soon as possible. Yes, these are the eligibility criteria for us while choosing reporters to cover such incidents.”
The incident has not discouraged other news reporters from other channels, and the place is now intolerably noisy, with each and every reporter trying to put forth his noisiest voice and the most fake sympathy for the parents of the girl. The parents of the girl are demanding the state government to pay compensation money and a place in Bollywood for Princess if she is taken out safely.
