I guess that Iraqi journalist was a trendsetter. Taking inspiration from him a Dainik Jagran journalist Jarnail Singh threw his shoe at P. Chidambaran when Chidambaran refused to talk further about the clean chit given by the CBI to the two main accused of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Jagdish Tytle and Sajjan Kumar. In his typical suave style he tried to bully the journalist and got a shoe hurled at him for the chutzpah.
Jarnail Singh was let off in half-an-hour after questioning. Some Congress persons are saying that they are forgiving him, but the losers actually mean they have no choice due to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections (they need Sikh votes and Jarnail Singh has, deservedly, become a hero).
