Oprah's guards held for manhandling scribes

On her maiden trip to India, American talk show queen Oprah Winfrey’s visit to this holy town on Thursday was marred after her bodyguards had a scuffle with journalists.

The three Indian bodyguards were arrested following the incident in which some video cameras were allegedly broken. No injuries were reported, police said.

The bodyguards were later released after they wrote a letter of apology to the media, police said.

Two American securitymen and a dozen bodyguards from India were part of Winfrey’s entourage when it reached Vrindavan. She is in India in connection with a shoot for her new show ‘Next Chapter.’

Earlier in the morning, she filmed a documentary on widows and also took part in a ‘bhajan’ at the ashram situated in Patthar Pura.

She is currently travelling around the world interviewing celebrities, newsmakers and others for her new show. She is also due to particiapte in the Jaipur Literature Festival.
