Disgraceful behaviour by Pakistan towards an NDTV journalist. This is no way to treat the press. Shocking. https://t.co/GPjqSPyhc3— Vikram Chandra (@vikramchandra) September 20, 2016
The incident happened on Monday, a day after the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri.
Chaudhry was to address the media on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly. Even Pakistan's prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who is attending the UN meet, reportedly ignored the Indian journalists who tried to speak to him.
As per the report, the press conference did not have even a single Indian.
