Police arrest Oprah's bodyguards

20 January 2012, 11:46

New Delhi - Indian police briefly detained three of Oprah Winfrey's bodyguards after they scuffled with local TV journalists on Thursday, a news agency reported.

The American talk-show host had been travelling with both American and Indian bodyguards while visiting the Hindu pilgrimage town of Mathura, about 145km south of Delhi.

Press Trust of India said police detained three of her bodyguards after local journalists said their video equipment had been damaged in a brawl. No one was reported hurt, and there was no indication that the American bodyguards were involved.

First trip to India

The three guards were released after apologising in a letter to the journalists, PTI said.

It is Winfrey's first trip to India, where she has been filming her new show Oprah's Next Chapter.

Earlier this week, she delighted Mumbai locals by wearing a bright orange sari while meeting with Bollywood stars including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai at a private party.

She also visited the Taj Mahal on Thursday, and she is due to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival that begins on Friday.
