Vijayawada: On the concluding day of F1H2O powerboat racing event in Vijayawada on November 18, a woman reporter of a vernacular news channel was allegedly abused by a man while covering the event.

The reporter was reporting LIVE when she was allegedly shunted out by the security personnel present there. When she questioned them over the sudden wrap-up, a person, said to be one of the members of the event's organiser team, made sarcastic comments against her, which led to a heated argument between the two.

When the reporter asked him to be quiet, he abused her and used filthy language.
